Chateau Tayac Margaux 2016 75cl 13% ABV
Chateau Tayac Margaux, Bordeaux, France
The Red Wine is fresh and plummy, warm and soft with a good core of fruit, very polished and lots of potential with well-integrated oak on the finish.
An ideal match for roast lamb served pink with herbs, or a rare sirloin steak.
Chateau Tayacs vineyards cover an area of 37 hectares, on the gravelly soils around Soussans. In the Portet family for 4 generations, this is very much a family affair. Guy Portet uses the Methode Cousinie, a system of observation and analysis to maintain optimum vineyard health with minimal treatments.
Nicolas Portet is the winemaker; the Wine style is harmonious and well-balanced allowing the excellent quality of the fruit to shine through.
This is a very expressive and pleasurable Margaux, fermented in a mix of cement and stainless steel tanks and aged for 10-12 months in French oak barrels, of which 35% are new.
