2001 Talbot, St-Julien

SKU #1015592 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark There is a great link here between the tannins, delicious red berry fruits and blackcurrants and the almost architectural structure. The wine certainly has fine fruit, a great balance, very complete, finishing gently, ripe and soft. (RV) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Colour-wise this wine has held itself together a little more than the 2000 vintage. The higher acidity could be down to the cooler nights in 2001, and this displays more grip and vibrancy through the palate. It definitely seems to have further to go on the palate – the fruit is black, tight and a little less expressive right now then the 2000. Nevertheless, this is still an extremely classic St-Julien, not hugely generous but with more intense menthol and cold ash notes. Well balanced. Aged in 50% new oak. A touch of Cabernet Franc makes up the blend. (JA) Inner quote mark (12/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Very perfumed with blackberry and light wet earth. Full-bodied, with silky tannins and a long, long finish. Rich and generous for the vintage. Much better than from barrel. (JS) Inner quote mark (3/2004)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very dry tannins but sweet palate entry. Clearly ambitious and solid. This should not disappoint. Very long and very “masculine”. Lots of extract without exaggeration. Long. 17/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2007)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2001, which represents only 50% of the production, is a blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 5% Cabernet Franc. A dense saturated ruby/purple color is followed by notes of smoked herbs, licorice, cedar, incense, plums, and black currants. The wine is medium-bodied and moderately tannic for a 2001, with good depth as well as power. (RP) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

K&L Notes

Blackberry aromas and boysenberry flavors mark a sweet entry followed by plenty of mid-palate fruit and great length. Well-made wine in an elegant style.
