About

91

The 2014 Château du Taillan has attractive blackberry and boysenberry fruit on the nose, a touch of pencil lead and smoke coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, very well judged acidity, a gentle grip and a lovely juicy blackberry and wild strawberry finish that puts a smile on your face. Delicious!

91 Wine Enthusiast

Owned by the Cruse family, part of the old Bordeaux elite, the estate is in the southern Médoc. The wine, with its firm character and rounded fruit, has weight and considerable richness. It will develop into a plush full-bodied wine. Drink from 2020.

Product Description:

"Château du Taillan has been a family property since 1896 and today, it is above all a modern story, told by women. Five sisters hold the reins of the Château located at the gates of Bordeaux and the Médoc. Each with their own personality, they write the history of the property and perpetuate this passion for viticulture and this historical heritage." -Winery
