Parker : 84 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
An elegant Talbot, finely etched and reminiscent of the style of the 1971, this medium-bodied, flavorful, fully mature wine is holding up nicely in the bottle. The fragrant, spicy, cedary bouquet is interesting and shows good fruit. Rather reserved on the palate, with polite flavors, some unresolved tannins still present, and above-average length, this is a good, rather than great, Talbot. Anticipated maturity: Now-may be in decline. Last tasted, 2/83.
