Connetable de Talbot 2010
"Legend relates that the name of this imposing estate originates with Connetable Talbot, a famous English warrior, defeated at the battle of Castillon in 1453. Talbot is one of the Medoc's oldest estates, its glory never tainted. Through the years, it has been fortunate enough to remain in good hands. The owners are Nancy BignonCordier and her family. They are the fourth generation of Cordiers to manage this Saint-Julien fourth Classified Growth. Connetable Talbot appeared in the sixties; it is one of the oldest second wines of the Medoc. Over the years, it has profited from all the care given to the vineyard and the increasingly severe selections.
After a rainy autumn, the land is restoring his groundwater in a harsh winter. The followed summer is drying with cool nights during the harvest season from late September to 15 October to pick healthy grapes perfectly ripe. Those allowed our plots produce fruit at this point concentrates (tannins, sugar and acidity). The development of 2010 was attached to take the best of these three components to achieve a great wine to lay witness to a prodigal nature and know-how in progress." -Importer notes
