Chateau Talbot 1986 Grand Cru Classe - Saint Julien 75cl / 12.5%
This bottle was donated by Robert Howell for the Distillers’ Livery Emergency Appeal in support of The Drinks Trust.
A bottle of 1986 Château Talbot Grand Cru Classé from Bordeaux's Saint-Julien appellation.
'The top vintages of the large St.-Julien estate, Talbot, have always been the 1986 and 1982, and both were spectacular on this occasion. We started with the 1986, figuring it was a firmer, slightly leaner vintage than the more opulent 1982. This bottle of 1986 exhibited incredibly complex notes of roasted herbs intermixed with licorice, saddle leather, and sweet black cherry as well as currant fruit. Full-bodied, fleshy, and rich, this fully mature 1986 will easily last for another decade or more. 94/100' Robert Parker, Hedonists Gazette, 2007
