Wine Advocate | 88

The 1989 is more elegant, with none of the herb, meaty, leathery aromas of the 1988. Opaque black/ruby, with a pronounced bouquet of black fruits and spices, this extracted, medium to full-bodied wine is voluptuous on the palate, with a fine finish. The 1989 Talbot promises to drink well during its first decade of life, but keep for up to 20 years.

A round and velvety-textured '89 just starting to reach its peak. Slightly rustic. Dark-ruby color. Blackberry and dried red berries. Full-bodied, with chewy tannins and a chocolate, plum aftertaste.--1989 Bordeaux horizontal.

About This Producer


Located in Saint-Julien, Chateau Talbot was classified as a Forth Growth chateau in the 1855 classification. The estate's history traces to Constable Talbot, who was an English warrior, defeated in France at the battle of Castillon in 1453. The Cordier family bought the estate in 1917 and continues operations today. The Cordiers believe in quality wine production with deepest respect for the land, and the results of their efforts are continually met with accolades from critics and wine enthusiasts worldwide. The vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon (66%), Merlot (26%), Cabernet Franc (5%) and Petit Verdot (3%), which in general mirrors the wine's blend. Talbot wines are consistently firm in structure with well-rounded tannins, and are highly concentrated, giving them excellent aging potential. Chateau Talbot also makes a dry white, Caillou Blanc de Talbot, produced from 80% Sauvignon and 20% Semillon, as well as a second label red, Connetable de Talbot.
