James Suckling 90-91
Sweet-tobacco and berry character with some cigar box. Medium body, firm tannins and a fresh-herb aftertaste to the fruit. Second wine of Talbot.
The 2020 Connetable de Talbot has a perfumed floral bouquet with rose petal and red berry fruit. The palate is nicely structured, to use Jean-Michel Laporte’s term, a Connetable that is more “serious” with a nicely proportioned, harmonious pencil shaving tinged finish. This should not require too much bottle age.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2029
