Château du Taillan, Le Taillan-Medoc

4.2
#10 of 18 in Historic Sites in Bordeaux
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.

    Wonderful place, it feels like years, centuries. A place of film, there is no hard to believe... the explanations are clear and controlled! The visit of the Winery is really really do. The wine is an excellent vintage bourgeois was quite reasonably priced for the quality of the beverage.

    My partner and I hired bikes and cycled pretty much all the way on cycle routes to this lovely vineyard. We hadn't booked but we were offered a tour and wine tasting (€12/pp) which we really enjoyed. ...  more »

    We visited the Castle Sunday afternoon in a small group of 10 having booked. Very nice visit, many explanations in french and English followed by a tasting of the wines of the area.

    Very nice place. Loaded cellars of history. Beautiful view of the field from the property. I consume wine, but the tour by Cristina (Czech guide) was very interesting and very clear. Fans enjoyed the tasting. To recommend without hesitation.

    Slightly disappointed by the welcome coming just for taste and maybe buy it was obliged to integrate a group visiting we felt embarrass. Paid tasting for just 4 different lenses even if wine is pretty good finally. Nice place!

    It was during a good Groupon that my wife we discover this beautiful area just minutes northeast of the Bordeaux ring road. The owner of the Castle, very friendly, presents us with his field. The cellars are very beautiful, totally authentic, we're here in basements which have a nice stamp. The gardens are a little classic but they have charm. At the end of the visit we have wines 4-5 (red/white and even pink) of property with a few cheeses, they were very interesting, we even left by buying two bottles. I recommend visiting this castle!

Where to stay in Bordeaux

Most hotels in Bordeaux sit conveniently located a stone's throw away from the train station. Look to Quinconces Square and Gambetta Square for high-end hotels. Those who prefer more budget-friendly accommodations may want to seek out a youth hostel--a relatively recent addition to the city. To secure a spot here, make sure to book ahead of time. In addition to hotels and hostels, choose from guest rooms in a typical Bordeaux house, or a family-friendly beachside campsite.
