A Century – Not Out: Talbot 1919-2010 (Oct 2019)

The 2006 Talbot offers this Saint-Julien’s trademark cedar and tobacco scents and as I remarked previously, there is a scent of walking around a stately home. The palate is medium-bodied with decent weight, rather austere in style and needing more flesh to come through on the finish. Respectable given the vintage but not the most exciting Talbot that you will ever taste. Tasted at a private lunch in London.
