1986 Château Talbot

Community Tasting Note


92 Points

Friday, February 1, 2013 - From 375. Great right out of the gate and then clamped down for a while. At first, cedar and dark fruits; tobacco and earth. 30 minutes in, showing a lot of smoke. And while with time some of the rough edges smoothed out, it lost a lot of interest. A little foursquare, but that's no crime for '86 Medoc. Just not as much interest as you'd hope - pretty similar to the last showing with this wine. Not one of my favorite vintages for Talbot.
