At Château Talbot, the wine combines both the past and the future; respect for tradition and technological evolution live in perfect harmony. The outcome of the combination of techniques, soil, and the people who passionately work it, is wines loaded with character, harmonious, and complex with the promise of beneficial longevity. Bordeaux enthusiasts who have had the chance to drink Talbot for 10+ years know this is an amazing wine to cellar and is available at a price that won't break the bank.Indeed, compare the pricing of Talbot to its neighbors at Leoville Las Cases, Leoville Poyferre, and Leoville Barton, and you'll be giddy about the quality and value.
Talbot can be wound up in its youth, but it's eminently drinkable. At 6-12 years, Talbot hits its stride and it's just yummy right now. An instant classic from a classic vintage, the wine has broad shoulders, but there are feminine qualities of floral aromas, bright black cherry fruit, and seamless integration. This wine is a joy to drink. Get it before it's gone.
94 Points, James Suckling
The smoky oak, full body, and chunky tannins make a bold statement; indeed, the wine has plenty of flesh and packs a big tannic punch on the finish. Best Talbot in years. Drink in 2023.
94 Points, Antonio Galloni
"The 2014 Talbot is soft, silky and wonderfully nuanced on the palate. Much more refined from bottle than it was from barrel, the 2014 has moved toward greater finesse over the last two years. This is a lovely effort. Lifted rose petal and lavender notes add closing nuance. The blend is 62 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 35 % Merlot and 6 % Petit Verdot"
