Reviews for 2005 Talbot Bordeaux Blend

WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, March 2008
Sweet tobacco berry and currant aromas follow through to a full body with soft silky tannins and a fresh racy aftertaste of currant and mineral. The texture of the tannins is very beautiful. Best after 2016. –JS

The Château Talbot 2005 has a very austere bouquet with antique bureau/mahogany scents infusing the tertiary black fruit. It opens nicely in the glass – certainly showing more vigour and fruit concentration than 2 or 3... The Château Talbot 2005 has a very austere bouquet with antique bureau/mahogany scents infusing the tertiary black fruit. It opens nicely in the glass – certainly showing more vigour and fruit concentration than 2 or 3 years ago. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and well judged acidity...classic in style

Very dark with a tiny violet rim. Incredibly thick in the glass. Brown sugar toast over cinnamon on the nose finishing with a lingering yeasty aroma. Fresh strawberry notes on the palate over hints of fresh green herbs... Very dark with a tiny violet rim. Incredibly thick in the glass.

Fairly well balanced although it finishes a little hot.
