Talbot 1989, 750ml


1 in stock.
"The 1989 Talbot may not be so backward and closed as the 1989 from its sister chateau, Gruaud-Larose, but it is a fascinating wine that resembles the 1982, although the 1982 possessed more weight and extract. The 1989 is more elegant, with none of the exotic spice and meaty, leathery aromas of the 1982. Opaque black/ruby, with a huge bouquet of black fruits and spices, this highly extracted, medium to full-bodied wine is voluptuous on the palate, with a fine finish. Lower in acidity than the 1982, but higher in tannin than the 1986, the 1989 Talbot promises to drink well during its first decade of life, but keep for up to 20 years. Anticipated maturity: 1994-2015. Tasted five times. Consistent notes." RP 90
