In 1923, Antoine Moueix acquired Château Taillefer, because of its long history and the potential of its terroir. Being from a farming family, he looked forward to bringing the estate back to its glory. In 1776, Château Taillefer is one of the crus that were shown on a map of France established by the geographer of Louis XV. Located on the plateau of Pomerol, the vineyard is situated all around the Château. The 12 hectares of Merlot and Cabernet Franc of Château Taillefer are fully expressed on this unique terroir. Taillefer gets its name from the famous iron deposits, characteristic of the terroir of Pomerol. It was recounted by elders that the plow 'toils the iron' from having lifted and turned over countless amounts of iron oxide. This special part of the soil imparts complexity to Pomerol in particular, and gives the wine minerality and aromas of truffles and violets.

Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2018 Taillefer has a profound licorice and Black Forest cake-scented nose with a core of plum preserves, baked blueberries and mocha. Full-bodied and generously fruited in the mouth, it has a solid, plush texture and just enough freshness, finishing with great length.

"A spicy, salty and fruity red with bark and wet earth undertones. Medium to full body, juicy tannins and a savory finish. Love the earthiness and Pomerol funk. Drink in 2020."

The 2018 Taillefer is an attractive, mid-weight Pomerol that will drink well with minimal cellaring. Bright red flowers, spice, mint, tobacco and white pepper lend vibrant aromatic presence throughout. The finish is persistent and very nicely articulated.
