Chateau du Taillan Haut Medoc 2015
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Haut Medoc|
|Brand||Chateau du Taillan|
Leaving Bordeaux for the Médoc, this is the first estate along the road. The wine is structured and firm, with some solid tannins and generous blackberry fruit. The wood aging and spice balance the blueberry and blackberry flavors. The wine should age well; drink from 2021.
Soft-textured dark plum and blackberry compote notes are inlaid liberally with a smoky tobacco hint. A flash of dark earth through the finish gives this a slightly rustic edge. Drink now through 2020. 10,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported.
