A strong effort from Talbot, this sexy, medium to full-bodied, richly fruity 2012 exhibits lots of creme de cassis, licorice, roasted herb and spice box characteristics in an evolved yet elegant, round, lush style that was surprisingly seductive and disarming. This offering stood out as one of the stars of St.-Julien. Drink it over the next 12-15 years.

This shows pretty depth and finesse for a young 2012 with mineral, blackberry and clove character. Remains subtle. Full body, a solid core of fruit and a long and structured finish.
