Description

Château du Taillan has been a Cru Bourgeois from Haut Médoc since 1932, it is the first estate on the road to Medoc. Purchased in 1986 by Henri Cruse it is now in its third generation of family ownership. A stunning Chateau and their wines are as impressive as the setting. A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc, the final blend spends 18-months in French Oak barriques. Stunning to be able to enjoy premium, 5-year old wine at this price.

Smells

Ripe blackberry fruits, currant, liquorice, pencil shavings and fine spice

Tastes

Generous from the start with black fruits and all characters that were so alluring on the nose culminate in a harmoniously and well-structured wine. Deeper smoky oak complexity emerges and the svelte tannins support the silky palate to a very fine black-fruited and multi-dimensional finish. Drinking superbly with 5-years of age but will go on for a decade or more yet.
