Talbot’s dense ruby/purple color is followed by an attractive, spicy, earthy St.-Julien displaying hints of tapenade, black cherries and soil undertones in a forward, lush, round, seductive style. This excellent, medium-bodied 2011 should provide delicious drinking for 10-15 years. Talbot appears to have succeeded admirably in this vintage. Wine Advocate.April, 2014

The Talbot 2011 has a tight, slightly pinched bouquet with blackberry and sous-bois, but missing a little “energy” considering that Saint Julien is one of the year’s more consistent appellations. The palate is medium-bodied with light sappy dark berry fruit. The oak is nicely integrated although it is hampered by a rather dry, very conservative finish. It is not a bad Talbot, but it needs to evolve more personality. Tasted April 2012. Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com

This is very fine for the vintage with a lovely blueberry and currants and spice character. Full body, with well-integrated tannins and a pretty finish. jamessuckling.com

This has solid depth, with good winey currant and blackberry fruit at the core, picking up briar, anise and sweet tobacco as it moves through the finish. James Molesworth, WineSpectator.com

Not much nose. Light and well mannered. Tannins well managed and rather supple and appealing already. jancisrobinson.com

Fine spicy cassis fruit and already showing smooth and elegant ripeness. It will open early but also keep well. Drink 2015-2025. Decanter.com

A very dark nose. Fine but not pungent. Very concentrated but streamlined with no hard edges. Finishes a little dry but nice for not being forced.
