Tasting Note

Very appealing in the glass, this is a seductive, pure, very expressive wine. The nose mingles white-fleshed cherries, lilies and wild roses, underscored by a more exotic hint of pink grapefruit juice. The palate is full-bodied and harmonious with plenty of depth, and a pleasant, appetizing finish. A delightful wine that will make very enjoyable drinking.

Connétable Talbot appeared in the sixties; it is one of the oldest second wines of the Médoc. Over the years, it has profited from all the care given to the vineyard and the increasingly severe selection at harvest.

Legend relates that the name of this imposing estate originates from Connétable Talbot, a famous English warrior, defeated at the battle of Castillon in 1453. Talbot is one of the Medoc’s oldest estates, its glory never tainted. Through the years, it has been fortunate enough to remain in good hands. The owners are Nancy Bignon-Cordier and her family. They are the fourth generation of Cordiers to manage this Saint-Julien fourth Classified Growth.
