Château Talbot 2010 (RP:94) / 2012 (RP:90)




「大寶酒莊對很多人來說,是最具代表性的聖朱利安村葡萄酒。酒香豐滿,很平衡穩定,陳年能力強,法國最著名的評酒師 Bettane & Desseauve在他們的著作「法國名酒寶典」中如是說。

眾所周知,大寶名酒是陳年潛力的冠軍。但是,這個優點並不妨礙他在年輕的時候就很美好,圓潤易飲,單寧柔順細緻。此酒有 外向性格,從來不會封閉自己,每天都能保持一貫好心情。這是一款很純粹的,有個性的葡萄酒,有哈瓦那雪茄,甘草的複雜香味,很經典傳統,從來也不會讓人有 嚴厲粗糙的感覺。

波爾多 Saint Julien



80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 4% Petit Verdot







Undeniably, Talbot is one of the most famous Médoc wines. This fine reputation is no doubt due to a mysterious combination of factors, such as the size of its vineyard, nearly one hundred hectares, and the regularity of its wine.  Nearly a century in the same family, the name Talbot is concise and hard-hitting, easy to pronounce in all languages and a part of our history… However, the first thing that makes Talbot popular is the wonderful nature of its wine.

‘For many, Talbot embodies the ideal Saint Julien, a generous bouquet, extremely stable and dependable during aging,’ emphasize Bettane and Desseauve in their Guide to French Wines.

It’s true. A champion of longevity, even when young Talbot is pleasant and rounded, ever distinguished by silky, mild and very civilized tannins. Talbot possesses an extraverted nature. It’s never withdrawn into itself, and has the courtesy of being in a good mood every day. It’s a racy wine, with complex marks of Havana and licorice, classically delicious without ever the slightest hint of austerity.

Tasting Notes:

(2010)One of the best Talbots over recent years, and possibly the best since the 1986 and 1982, this sexy juggernaut of a wine struts forth with an opaque plum/ruby/purple color and terrific notes of creme de cassis, licorice, roasted herbs and smoky barbecue. It is a brilliant effort, with full body, wonderful fruit, a savory, expansive mouthfeel, sensational texture and a long finish, but no hardness or astringency. This is a fabulous Talbot to drink over the next 20-25 years.

(2012)It has a decent nose that actually has more fruit intensity than expected, although it still feels rather conservative. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly tough tannins. They have certainly tried to extract as much as possible and credit to them that they have not taken it too far. It needs to gain more finesse by the time of bottling.
