|Region||Bordeaux, St. Julien|
Tasted at BI Wine & Spirits' 10-Years-On tasting, the 2007 Talbot has a pleasant, classic nose of singed leather and game, a little muffled compared to its peers. But there is a sense of charm that I like, and it speaks of its appellation origin. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth texture. It lacks depth and grip but is nicely balanced with a cedar-tinged finish that pulls up short, as if to say, that's your lot.
Winespectator / James Suckling (87)
There's blueberry jam and violet on the nose in this medium-bodied red, with slightly chewy tannins, a fresh herb undertone and a medium finish. Slightly hollow.
Rene Gabriel rates this wine 18/20 points.
