Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

This was a strong performance (better than my original notes suggested) by the 2000 Talbot. Close to full maturity, it exhibits a dense ruby/plum/purple color in addition to a subtle herbaceousness intermixed with smoked meats, black currants, licorice, cedar, and foresty notes. Rich and full-bodied with light tannins, and a slightly richer, more savory, broader, deeper style than I remember, it should drink well for 10-15 years.

The 2000 Talbot is served in one of 1,000 “Sylvain Dubuisson” bottles, whereby the bottle is housed in a vessel that filters the wine. Deep in colour, it has a Burgundian bouquet with pastille-like raspberry and cranberry fruit laced with tobacco and cedar. With time in the glass it becomes more floral in style. The palate is medium-bodied and softer in texture than other millennial Left Bank wines. Dorset plum intermingles with boysenberry with a touch of vanilla, though it feels quite backward on the finish (redeemed by appealing smoothness.) Good length here and fine potential. Tasted at the centenary Château Talbot vertical at the property.www.vinous.com

This has a solid core of plum cake, blackberry paste and warmed fig fruit flavors that are fully melded together, while sweet cedar and tobacco notes line the finish. Right where it should be now.--Blind 2000 Bordeaux retrospective (December 2015). JM

This is a beautiful red now with plums, roses and blackberries on the nose and palate. Full body with wonderfully integrated tannins that caress your palate. So beautiful. Drink now.
