Wine Advocate

93 Points, Robert Parker, The 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." 6/10

Neil Martin

92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Finally, a Talbot that delivers. Elegant and classy when tasted out of barrel. Then at the UGC in November 2002: more classic Bordeaux than Leoville Poyferre. Rustic and earthy on the palate but not as concentrated as others for the vintage. A top class wine. Then a great bottle in November 2004. This is a great success for Chateau Talbot that made some poor wines in the 1990's. A very muted nose with hints of dried blood and tobacco. The palate is very elegant and stylish with a lot of finesse from start to finish. Good acidity and poise. Quite feminine, not too showy, this is more refined. Superb. Drink from 2010."


92 Points, Jane Anson, Decanter: "Soft, blueberry and brambled autumn fruit - a definite hedgerow feel. This has expectedly soft tannins at this stage, moving into tertiary territory. Certainly an excellent wine for early drinking, with cigar smoke notes, even the dried tobacco leaf. It's currently at its peak Médoc character, although perhaps it softens too much towards the end. This is elegant and effortless, full of classic St-Julien balance. Aged in 50% new oak. A touch of Cabernet Franc makes up the blend." 12/17
