Marks and reviews
A magnificent wine from the prestigious Saint-Julien property, the « Connetable de Talbot » of the 4th Classified Growth Chateau Talbot, pays homage to Constable Talbot, an English soldier and governor of Guyenne.
Recognized as "one of the very best second wines of the Medoc", the Connetable de Tablot of Chateau Talbot was created in the 1960's.
Just like its predecessor, the Connetable de Talbot is made with the utmost respect for fruit and terroir. This wine is produced with fruit from a selection of vines, aged 30 years on average, planted in Medoc gravel soil on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.
The Connetable de Talbot 2018 is made from a blend of 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 57% Merlot. The wine is aged for 16 months in barrel, of which 20% is new. The Connetable of Talbot 2018 is produced in the style that has become associated with Chateau Talbot: an elegant and classic Saint-Julien.
