Tasting Notes

The 2019 Connetable de Talbot has a rather monotone bouquet that lacks the terroir expression of its peers, slightly pruney in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a smooth entry. Tarry in style, the oak a little too vocal and I wonder if there is real substance behind that facade? Espresso lingers on the aftertaste. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting. Drink 2025-2040.

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. 2023 - 2033
