It exhibits a dense plum/ruby/purple hue along with sweet boysenberry black currant cherry smoke and licorice aromas and flavors. This deep medium to full-bodied classic Talbot should be approachable when released and age effortlessly for 15 or more years.

This super focused and firm with a bright and intense fruit. Full and super silky with a long long finish. Super straight and beautiful. This is better in 2010.

Plump and rather open with delicious plum raspberry and black cherry fruit melded with spice and anise. This has a nice chocolaty finish with a velvety feel. -J.M.

This is the second vintage under Stephane Derenancourt. A blend 63% Cabernet Sauvignon 32% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot the 2010 has a refined bouquet that for me has better harmony and focus than the 2009 at this stage last year a purity that perhaps has been missing from the estate in recent vintages. The palate is impressive: the Cabernet Sauvignon very pure and focused a newfound sense of mineralité and elegance and precision towards the finish. One of the best Talbot produced in recent years...but there is still room to improve. Drink 2014-

Using 62% Cabernet Sauvignon 33% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot the wine offers cassis earth and tobacco scents. Medium/full bodied the cassis filled finish shows a hint of green flavors in the end.

Coffee chocolate earth and wild mushroom emerge up front on the nose with black fruit following behind. While there seems to be uniformity in the wines of St. Julien for this vintage the nose on the 2010 Talbot is unique for its prominence of earthy aromas. Whether that holds true over time or if the fruit moves forward will be the key to this Talbot joining the upper echelon from St. Julien or not. With definite power on the palate the dark fruit is supported by ample acidity so that this is big and structured while remaining lively. At this time there is more power than elegance here and this seems more appropriate in a lineup of Pauillac wines than with its brothers and sisters from St. Julien. Stephane Derenoncourt consults. Best 2015-2030.
