    Violet-tinted, dark hue introduces a mix of intense black fruits and elegant flowers. Alluring yet intriguing, Chateau Talbot 2014 nose is exhaustive, concentrated, ample, and rather delicate. The palate boasts firm, defined structure and fine-grained tannins. With a strong build, this Saint-Julien appeal lies in the consistent freshness and acidity present from beginning to end. A very well-balanced wine with great ageing potential.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 Talbot felt reticent and tightly knit on the nose, so I placed my glass to one side and allowed it to aerate for 15-20 minutes. This paid dividends as it revealed blackcurrant, smoke and tobacco aromas, hints of boysenberry with time. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, quite structure and perhaps needing more flow. It feels a little rigid at the moment and I would want more persistence and depth on the finish. Let's see how this ages in bottle, because it certainly showed improvement between samples in October 2016 and February 2017.
