Reviews for 2011 Talbot Bordeaux Blend

WS 92
Wine Spectator - Wine Spectator, April 2012
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.-J.M.

A juicy young 2011 with chocolate, berry and toasted-oak character. Full and rich. Needs time to soften. This is better than the 2010 Talbot. Try in 2017.

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. - Robert M. Parker, Jr.

Notes of black cherry and cooked strawberry mix with aromas of forest floor herbs-de-Provence and cinnamon on the nose. Elegant and approachable on the palate the wine lacks some weight and with a high level of acidity the finish is short. Time may bring the overall package into balance but without the structure this feels too light overall. Enjoy 2015-2025.
