Chateau Talbot 2002

86 points

Saint Julien, Bordeaux. 13%

Dark red, savoury with a touch of metallic flavour, low acid. Lacks the intensity, acidity and fruit purity of the best 2002 wines. Disappointing for a St Julien. I noticed a smidge of caramelised wine at the top of the cork suggesting poor storage (exposure to heat). Perhaps not the best bottle.

Drink over the next 3 years (2008 – 2010).

  1. Another bottle tried over 2 nights in September 2008. I thought it was quite good, without the fruit purity of the best 2002 from the Medoc but firm and classic.
