Marks and reviews
A 4th Classified Growth of Saint-Julien, Chateau Talbot is one of the most iconic references of the Medoc. Acquired by Desire Cordier in 1918, Chateau Talbot is today managed by Nancy Bignon-Cordier and her husband, Jean-Paul Bignon.
Situated in the heart of the appellation, Chateau Talbot produces fine Saint-Julien wines that stem from a 93.8-hectares single-block vineyard. The vines dedicated to the production of the estate's Second Wine, which are 28 years old on average, enjoy an ideal location on the banks of the Gironde estuary and rest on ridges of Medoc gravel and alluvial deposits.
Released in the 1960s, Connetable Talbot is one of the very first second wines of the Medoc. Made from young vines, Connetable Talbot by Chateau Talbot seduces lovers of fine Medoc wines with its classic style, its combination of elegance and precision, and its nice, fresh length on the palate.
Vinification and aging
The grapes are harvested by hand and then sorted successively (manually, optically or densimetrically) before vinification in stainless steel vats. The wine is aged exclusively in barrels.
Connetable Talbot 2021 comprises a blend of Merlot (60%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (40%).
