Château-Talbot Saint Julien 2012

SKU nb970412


A champion of longevity, even when young Talbot is pleasant and rounded, ever distinguished by silky, mild and very civilized tannins. Talbot possesses an extraverted nature. It's never withdrawn into itself, and has the courtesy of being in a good mood every day. It's a racy wine, with complex marks of Havana and licorice, classically delicious without ever the slightest hint of austerity.

Wine EnthusiastBarrel sample. This wine is heavily influenced by ample new-wood aging. It's deliciously juicy with black currant and plum fruits balanced by swathes of refreshing acidity at the end.

Wine AdvocateA juicy style of wine, Talbot's 2012 has a dense ruby/purple color, plenty of black and red currant fruit, a touch of plum, soft tannin and a spicy, medium-bodied mouthfeel. It is excellent, with no hollowness or astringency. This is a very successful wine in this vintage and should drink well for 15-20 years.

Wine SpectatorHas a core of fresh plum and blackberry fruit, backed by slightly austere grip on the finish, with an iron note hanging in the background. Direct, but a bit shy on range and stuffing. Drink now through 2019. 25,031 cases made.
