1966 Chateau Talbot

Post by AHB » 22:33 Sun 27 Dec 2015

Deep red, mature but with hints of mahogany. An attractive nose of straw and pine dust resin; big and powerful, morphing into tar and mineral dust with time in the glass. Sweet fruit entry with a big streak of minerality. A delicious aftertaste, full of flavour but with dry tannins showing on the finish. This is a wonderful wine, with a combination of mature fruit and acidity that delivers a great level of complexity. 94/100. Drunk 24-Nov-15. Pop 'n' pour.

Drunk at Otto's on 24 November 2015.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
