(2nd wine of Talbot)
The ripe cassis and delicately herbal nose draws you into a really elegant wine that has very polished tannins for this category. Long, ripe and refined finish. A great food wine! Drink or hold. The second wine of Château Talbot.

The 2015 Connétable de Talbot is an attractive second wine from Talbot. Sweet red cherry pit, white pepper and mint give the 2015 much of its lithe, feminine personality. The Connétable shows the more delicate side of Saint-Julien and is best enjoyed sooner rather than later.
