    A floral, fruity and very elegant Saint-Julien

    According to the estate, it was necessary to survey the vines to understand the impact of the extreme weather conditions. 2016 was an atypical vintage that was great for the terroirs and the vineyards. Chateau Talbot’s old Merlot vines proved to be quite surprising. The Cabernet Sauvignon has an outstanding profile when grown on this terroir. The yield was not very large, but harvest was homogenous. October 3rd-October 17th were the dates of 2016’s harvest.

    Connetable de Talbot 2016 is a Saint-Julien produced from 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 60% Merlot. This second wine has a dark and rich color. The nose has notes of flowers and red fruit. Its aromas are enticing, elegant and fresh. The mouth is surprisingly powerful in terms of its tannic structure-considering a second wine is usually less dense than the first. A full-bodied wine with spices and a fruity finish. A great success with the 2016 vintage for Chateau Talbot’s second wine.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Pale to medium garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Connetable de Talbot features red and black plums as well as red and black currants on the nose with suggestions of bay leaves, fallen leaves and cloves. The palate is medium-bodied, refreshing and elegant with plenty of lively red berries and warm plum flavors, with a soft texture and spicy finish.
