"Leaving Bordeaux for the Medoc, this is the first estate along the road. The wine is structured and firm, with some solid tannins and generous blackberry fruit. The wood aging and spice balance the blueberry and blackberry flavors. The wine should age well; drink from 2021. -RV"

Product Description:

"Château du Taillan has been a Cru Bourgeois from Haut Médoc since 1932.

The high quality of the wine starts at the beginning of the wine making process with the care of the vines. Vine maintenance, including pruning, lifting, de-budding and leaf removal are carried out throughout the year by experienced vinegrowers. The family takes special care in the vineyard.

The red wine is issued from a blend of grape varieties typical to the Bordeaux area: Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine-making process takes place in stainless steel vats in which we control the fermentation and ensure a strict temperature control. We also carry out daily analysis and sampling of the different wines, during the harvest." -Winery
