It’s time for the vintage 2016 to go in oak barrels for the ageing period.
Happy new year !!
Château du Taillan 2014 ranked at the first place by Neal MARTIN in the top 3 for “Bordeaux” Category.
Winter is coming!
Vines will sleep during this period and it’s the perfect time to prune it.
Our team is happy with the beautiful sun! They have to select the best asters for 2017!
Drink Date: 2018 – 2028
Martin Neal from The Wine Advocate
“The 2014 Château du Taillan has attractive blackberry and boysenberry fruit on the nose, a touch of pencil lead and smoke coming through with time. The palate is medium-bodied with svelte tannin, very well judged acidity, a gentle grip and a lovely juicy blackberry and wild strawberry finish that puts a smile on your face. Delicious! Tasted September 2016.”
We started the harvest on Monday with a brilliant sun!
During September, the weather was beneficial for our grapes.
Sun, ripeness, and the good mood of the team promise a very nice vintage!
