    (Talbot) The second flight led off with the 1986 Talbot. There were lots of green beans and olives in the nose, which was a bit waxy and spiny, though also clean. Some tickling crushed red fruits rounded out the nose, which also had a little bathwater edge to it. The palate was much more classic; it had sweet, tasty and nutty fruit and a spicy palate that had mineral, earth and game flavors. Sweet cassis, nut and caramel flavors were also there. It was thick in the mouth but balanced, classic and delicious despite a bit of awkwardness to its aromatics (93).

    (Chateau Talbot St Julien) Surprisingly a tawny rim - this is a relatively youthful wine. The nose has classic rich ink and liquorice. Smooth palate, good tannins, acidity good, well balanced, nice fruit. Smoky notes give some complexity. Finishes smoothly. Good length.
