2016 Talbot, St-Julien 12-Pack in OWC (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1546811 93-96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Pure, with a core of cassis and blueberry fruit streaming through, carried by ample yet embedded graphite-edged grip. Keeps a fresh feel through the finish. Lovely. (JM) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

93-95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a juicy wine, already bursting with fruit and well-integrated tannins. It is a wine with a medium-term future, best enjoyed around 2026. (RV) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is already a beautiful St.-Julien that’s ripe and elegant with not a jot too much oak or tannin, but a very fresh and lively finish that keeps on going. However, there are some serious reserves in this wine that need time to be released. Already very harmonious, but better from 2021. Inner quote mark (2/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Talbot is aromatically quite expressive, but less available on the palate, where it is quite closed down. Time in the glass brings out a host of sweet tobacco, smoke, leather, cedar, mint, licorice and red-toned fruit. In two tastings, Talbot gave the impression it is going to need at least a few years to fully come into its own. Even so there is plenty to look forward to once the tannins start to melt away a bit. Consultants Stéphane Derenoncourt and Julien Lavenu have done quite a bit to raise the bar here, but I get a sense more is possible. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Talbot is medium garnet-purple colored and opens with pretty floral notes of roses and lavender with a core of cassis, blackberry preserves and kirsch plus wafts of cigar box and spearmint. Medium-bodied with a lovely intensity of black and red fruit flavors, it has a ripe, grainy texture and compelling freshness, finishing savory. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2018)
