Connetable is the second wine of Chateau Talbot which is perceived as one of the most reliable wine in St-Julien. Sourced from younger vines, it has plenty of blackcurrant and other wild berry fruit alongside cedar aromas. Very elegant yet full bodied with silky tannins.
“The second wine of Château Talbot isn’t far behind the grand vin in 2012, which is saying something given the challenges of the vintage. It’s similarly sweet and aromatic, with tobacco, cedar wood and green pepper to the fore, plush tannins and lovely balance.” – 93pts Tim Atkin MW, Apr 2013
French still red wine from Saint Julien Bordeaux France, made with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Since the 1950s the estate has been owned by the Cordier family, who also produce a white wine ‘Le Caillou Blanc de Talbot’, very unusual for the area. The Grand Vin is Chateau Talbot and the 2nd wine is Connetable de Talbot.
