James Suckling 90-91
Sweet-tobacco and berry character with some cigar box. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh-herb aftertaste to the fruit. Second wine of Talbot.
The 2020 Talbot is a hugely promising wine. It offers up an exotic mélange of inky dark fruit, chocolate, licorice, gravel, lavender and menthol. Brooding in the glass, with broad shoulders and tons of intensity, the 2020 is a Talbot that marries power, breadth and savory intensity with notable stylishness and tons of personality. Impressive.
Anticipated maturity: 2030-2045
