A Médoc Grand Cru Classé, Château Talbot comprises 110 hectares of a single vineyard in the heart of the Saint-Julien commune, an outstanding appellation as it counts no fewer than 11 classified growths. Ideally situated on the banks of the Gironde estuary on hilltops of alluvial gravel carried by the Dordogne River from the Massif Central and from the Pyrenees by the Garonne, Château Talbot’s terroir is exceptional. Connétable Talbot is considered to be one of the best second wines of the Médoc. Connétable was first produced back in the 1960s. It has benefitted over the years from all the care given to the vineyard and increasingly astute selections. Like Château Talbot, this is a classic, elegant wine with a clear, well-designed structure and a long, fresh finish.
