Description

A fresh and elegant Second Wine of Saint-Julien

The estate

A 4th Classified Growth of Saint-JulienChâteau Talbot is one of the most iconic references of Haut-Médoc. Acquired by Desire Cordier in 1918, Château Talbot is today managed by Nancy Bignon-Cordier and her husband, Jean-Paul Bignon.

The vineyard

The Château Talbot vineyard is a real treasure, covering 110 hectares of vines all in one piece, in the heart of the Saint-Julien appellation. These vines, 43 years old on average, enjoy an ideal location on the edge of the Gironde estuary and are planted in ridges of Médoc gravel and alluvial deposits.

The wine

Born in the 1960s, Connetable Talbot is one of the very first second wines of the Médoc. This great Haut-Médoc red wine is made from younger vines but with the same care taken during the selection of fruit and during its vinification than for the estate’s first wine. Following in the footsteps of the first wine, Connetable Talbot from Château Talbot seduces those who love great Médoc wines with its classic style, its combination of elegance and precision, and its nice, fresh length on the palate.

Vinification and ageing

Harvested manually, the grapes are subjected to successive sorting (manual, optical or densimetric) before vinification in stainless steel vats. Ageing lasts 15 months in barrels, 15% of which are of new oak.

The blend

The Connétable Talbot 2020 is made from a blend of Merlot (60%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (40%).
