Estate Notes

Château Talbot's 2000 comes from a blockbuster Bordeaux vintage, and according to the Wine Spectator is the 'Best Talbot in years.'

Château Talbot is one of the largest estates in the Médoc (over 100 hectares), and many other Bordeaux châteaux border its vineyards. Big can sometimes be beautiful and that is certainly true of Talbot. At the time of the Bordeaux classification of 1855 Talbot was fitting of its fourth growth status. However, it now merits a much higher designation.

Reviews

"Beautiful aromas of raspberries, Indian spices, crushed flowers and berries. Full-bodied, with a solid core of ripe fruit and silky tannins. Long and delicious. A very fine and pretty wine. Best Talbot in years." Wine Spectator

“This was a strong performance (better than my original notes suggested) by the 2000 Talbot. Close to full maturity, it exhibits a dense ruby/plum/purple color in addition to a subtle herbaceousness intermixed with smoked meats, black currants, licorice, cedar, and foresty notes. Rich and full-bodied with light tannins, and a slightly richer, more savory, broader, deeper style than I remember..." Robert Parker
