Talbot 1993

Chateau Talbot

26

Talbot's 1993 exhibits a medium ruby color, a fragrant, smoky, herbal, green pepper-scented nose, light to medium body, no astringency or sharpness, yet, sadly, unimpressive flavor concentration. The wine is ready to drink, and should be consumed over the next 4-5 years. *** Talbot's 1993 should be popular with consumers. It has avoided the tough texture and hard tannin of the vintage. The result is a deep ruby-colored, supple wine with gobs of herb and chocolatey cassis fruit presented in a medium-bodied, expansively-flavored, supple style with good purity and plenty of juicy red and black fruits. The acidity is low and the wine is already delicious and seductive. Drink it over the next decade.

Chateau Talbot is a top wine producer from the Saint Julien appellation in Bordeaux, France. It is classified as a Fourth Growth according to the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, alongside nine other prestigious chateaux.

Along with the grand vin, Chateau Talbot produces a second wine labeled Connetable de Talbot (since 1979) and one very old dry white wine, named Caillou Blanc.
