The 1978 Talbot is a vintage that has escaped my palate until now. At four decades it has an attractive animally, dried-blood and sous-bois tinged nose that you could almost mistake for an old Rhône! The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, touches of black pepper and tobacco with an “old school”, light but fresh finish. It is a very classic old Saint-Julien but fair dues – this Talbot seems to be holding up well still giving pleasure. ~90VM, Neal Martin
