Deep colour. Fresh red currant, mulberry, liquorice aromas. Richly flavoured wine with redcurrant, mulberry, liquorice flavours and fine chalky al dente tannins. Juicy and velvety firm at the finish. Fresh and balanced. Andrew Caillard MW, 94 points.
A strong effort from Talbot, this sexy, medium to full-bodied, richly fruity 2012 exhibits lots of creme de cassis, licorice, roasted herb and spice box characteristics in an evolved yet elegant, round, lush style that was surprisingly seductive and disarming. This offering stood out as one of the stars of St.-Julien. Drink it over the next 12-15 years. Robert Parker, 90-92 points.
