Connetable Talbot Saint Julien 2020
|Region||France, Bordeaux, St. Julien|
This is one of the best second wines of the Médoc. Connétable saw the light of day in the sixties. It has benefited over the years from all the care given to the vineyard and increasingly severe selections. Like its predecessor Chateau Talbot, this is a classic, elegant wine with a clear, well-designed structure and a long, fresh finish.
A forward-styled offering, showing a mix of singed vanilla, savory and steeped plum notes, with a streak of iron and a lingering licorice accent. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2030. 14,000 cases made, 500 cases imported.
