Interim End of November 2018, The Wine Advocate
Pale to medium garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Connetable de Talbot features red and black plums as well as red and black currants on the nose with suggestions of bay leaves, fallen leaves and cloves. The palate is medium-bodied, refreshing and elegant with plenty of lively red berries and warm plum flavors, with a soft texture and spicy finish.
230, The Wine Advocate
The 2016 Connetable de Talbot, the Deuxième Vin of Talbot, has a very light and rather anonymous bouquet that needs to express more fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a leafy opening, taut in style with a rather austere finish.
