Connetable is the second wine of Chateau Talbot, one of the largest estates in the Médoc with 102 hectares of vine near Beychevelle. It is perceived as one of the most reliable wines in St-Julien. 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.
Offered for sale ‘En Primeur’ under bond. Price shown is per case (12x75cl bottles) and excludes UK duty and VAT which will be charged at the prevailing rate when the wine is released from bond. Onward delivery from bond charges are not included, free delivery on orders above £100 does not apply. Reward Card points are not accruable or redeemable on ‘En Primeur’ or In Bond sales.
Lots of blue fruit in this second wine with a medium to full body, polished and racy tannins and a fresh and vivid finish.- 91 pts James Suckling
