Lot 81

St Julien, 1982
1 (1 x 1) 750ml
Legend has it that Chateau Talbot takes its name from an ancient British soldier, Connetable Talbot. In 1453, Talbot was killed during the battle in the fight at Castillon and the estate was named in his honor. Chateau Talbot remained in the hands of the d’Aux-Lally family until 1917, when the Cordier family bought the property.The Fourth Growth from St Julien has a reputation for consistency and is one of the most carefully made clarets. 1982 remains a classic vintage for Chateau Talbot.

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 95/100 (2009)
