"Ripe, with a modestly succulent edge to the plum and blackberry fruit that's pushed gently by lightly firm, coffee-tinged toast. Open-knit finish. Drink now through 2018. - JM" (2013)

Product Description:

Wine:
"Made from 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc. From the Libournais region in Bordeaux. Warm rich red fruits and spice, rich nose, light buttered toast, finish is black pepper and tobacco." - Importer

Winery:
"Chateau Tauzinat Hermitage Castle is "one of the oldest wines of the region," we read in the first Feret. Its name originates from the Pyrenean oak, famous for truffles that grow at their feet. History mentions this property since 1670, when the house was built. In the eighteenth century it became the property of Count Amedee Jacques Carles, lieutenant general of the armies of the King."

"Quality wine at Tauzinat Hermitage is recognized at the Exposition Universelle in Paris in 1889, and since then many medals were awarded to the quality of work of the family of Bernard Moueix. With great elegance and generosity Tauzinat Hermitage Castle is very much appreciated by gourmets, who are on French tables and other famous foreign tables." - Importer

This was also scored 86 points in the Wine Advocate.
