Château du Taillan, Le Taillan-Medoc

Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web
Located on the banks of the Garonne, Château du Taillan has been in the winemaking business since the Middle Ages. In fact, the Knights Templar are believed to have made their own wine here. The current owner's family has presided over the business for more than 100 years. Their vineyard specializes in merlot, because the grape does so well in the region's clay-limestone soil. Take a tour of the winery, which covers the history of the castle, as well as its 16th-century cellars, and taste its acclaimed wine.

  • The visit of the cellars and the winery led by a friendly guide is interesting and ends with an educational wine tasting of the 3 colors. However, the "picnic basket" is disappointing (2 glasses of wine, 2 small packages of chips, 2 pieces of bread, 2 small sausage sandwiches and cucumber, 1 plate of cheese and charcuterie, 1 punnet of cherry tomatoes, 2 apricots, 2 cafes and 2 hope). For two people, it is just in quantity and from a qualitative point of view it's really any. It would be although emphasis on regional products (the hope were not terrible).
