4e Grand Cru Classé
€ 55.90/ Per fles min. 12 flessen
Vinous – Antonio Galloni – 91-93/100
The 2021 Talbot is impeccable. Soft and inviting, the 2021 is absolutely
charming. Red-fleshed fruit, blood orange, mint and spice are front and
center. Although pretty easygoing in style, the 2021 is beautifully balanced
and is not penalized by some of the rougher edges that have been an
issue in the past. If the 2021 is an indication of where the estate is
heading, that direction appears to be quite positive.
Robert Parker – The Wine Advocate – 91-92+/100
The 2021 Talbot is promising, exhibiting aromas of wild berries, cherries, cigar wrapper and sweet spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety palate that’s bright and seamless, with an enveloping, charming profile despite analytically rather high levels of polyphenols. This is a fine effort that reminds Jean-Michel Laporte of the 2001 vintage in style—though the 2021 will benefit from all the improvements that the last two decades have witnessed at this address. Tasted four times.
