Château du Taillan, Le Taillan-Medoc

(4.1/5 based on 85+ 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.

  • All phases of manufacturing wine are explained (from harvest to bottling) as well as the history of places by a very competent and friendly guide, tasting of 4 red & 1 white with explanations on the flavors. The setting is very nice. If you're in the area feel free.

  • A very nice guide and a nice visit. Tasting of 4 wines: white a wonderful discovery, a very fruity wine I like, Pink is also excellent, as for red wines the 2012 and 2013 are very different, but have been very appreciated every 2. Good idea the dried apricots, chocolate, nuts and cheese!
