Chateau Talbot 1998

A red wine from Saint-Julien with great richness

Château Talbot is a 4ème Cru Classé en 1855 produced in the Saint-Julien appellation. The property owes its name to a famous man of war who lost at the Battle of Castillon in 1453, Constable Talbot. The vineyard of 102 hectares is made up of vines aged 46 years on average, planted on Médoc gravel. The wine is aged half new barrels. The blend of the 1998 vintage contains 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot.


With its magnificent deep ruby color, the château Talbot 1998 exudes a fine and pure bouquet of beautiful intensity. One can notice aromas of fruits combined with subtle woody notes. On the palate, the wine shows great richness, with a velvety attack and extremely soft tannins. The wine ends with superbly fresh finish.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Readers should be aware that this is a wine I underrated in my original report on the 1998 vintage. It is performing better out of bottle than it did from cask. With age, the mid-section has filled out and the wine has put on weight. A deep plum/garnet color is accompanied by an up-front, seductive nose of melted licorice, cedar, plums, black cherries, and cassis. This attractive Talbot is nicely-textured and medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin. It is pleasing to see how this wine has matured. Anticipated maturity: 2003-2016.
