The 2013 Talbot is a pleasing, accessible wine with good up-front presence and lovely overall balance. Dark fruit, leather, menthol, game, smoke, licorice and herbs add attractive shades of nuance throughout. The 2015 Talbot is a bit rustic and not especially complex, but it sure is delicious. Best of all, the Talbot should drink well relatively early and be priced reasonably, making it one of the better values of the vintage. Stéphane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu are the consulting winemakers. Apr 2016, www.Vinous.com

The 2015 Talbot has a very typical nose for this Saint Julien estate: unapologetically classic in style, reserved even, with very subtle blackberry and briary scents tinged with pencil shavings. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, moderate weight in the mouth, but it feels very linear and conservative towards the finish. Talbot rarely shows well out of barrel and can improve in bottle, so I will be a little more optimistic in my score and hope that it gains matière during élevage.

A refined yet chewy young red with lots of blackberry and blueberry aromas and flavors. Full body, ripe tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Mar 2016, www.JamesSuckling.com

This distinctive wine puts a slightly chewy and austere note of warm stone alongside the vintage’s more typical lush tannins, giving this interesting contrast. The core sports solid currant and blackberry fruit, with ample length. Mar 2016, James Molesworth, www.WineSpectator.com

A Stéphane Derenoncourt wine. Mid crimson. Fragrant. Not concentrated but fresh and vital on the nose. Absolutely classic claret for early drinking. Or airlines! Apr 2016, www.JancisRobinson.com, Drink: 2017-2024

Classic, robust and meaty Talbot fruit with slightly gamey spice, but more polish and lift in 2015. Always open in style but will last well. Apr 2016, Steven Spurrier, www.Decanter.com, Drink: 2021-2033

Forward, floral and comparatively easy to drink, even from barrel, this is light, pure and attractive, all red fruits and tobacco leaf with textured tannins and well handled oak. Not profound, but appealing stuff. Apr 2016, www.timatkin.com, Drink: 2020-2028
