Château Talbot Saint-Julien Red Bordeaux Blend 1982

Along with the 1986, the 1982 is one of the greatest Talbots ever made. Far more evolved than its stablemate, Gruaud Larose, it exhibits a dense garnet color to the rim along with a huge, sweet, exotic nose of charcoal, beef blood, licorice, herbs, and black fruits. A hint of figs suggests borderline overripeness, but the wine remains fleshy and full-bodied with sweet tannin and an expansive, heady mouthfeel. While fully mature, it should hold for another decade. Robert Parker

Was pleasantly leathery and not over the top still showing some dark red berry character with some tobacco spice on a grand finish. As Frank sang: It was a very good year...

Sublime. Everything one wants in a Bordeaux with some age. Amazing birthday wine.

Fully mature slightly dry but still enjoyable. Typical S Julien character - cedar tobacco graphite. Lovely

Funky, bretty, it that Cordier sort of way, giving it an animal edge. Sweet fruit and very nice tannins.

Stewed vegetable- only just a hint of fruit hanging on. Very smooth, and easy drinking though. Can't complain, but thought I'd like it more.
