“The 2019 Connetable Talbot is a hearty, rustic wine. Black cherry, dark spice, leather, tobacco and game show a good deal of intensity. …this is nicely done and a tasty second wine from Talbot.” 88 pts., Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com
The 2019 Connetable de Talbot has a perfumed, well-defined bouquet with a skip in its step, featuring red berry fruit, cinnamon and touches of brown spice. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. This is a well-balanced Connetable with a bit more body than previous vintages, slightly savory in style and maybe missing a little length. But as a Deuxième Vin, it works well. 13.8% alcohol [Neal Martin, 01/02/2022]
