Located at Haut-Médoc, Château du Taillan is a 150 hectares wine estate with centuries-old of vineyards. The vineyards cover up to 30 hectares. Château du Taillan dates back to the 18th century. However, it was acquired in 1896 by Henri Cruse. After 4 generations, the estate is currently managed by the 5 Cruse’ daughters. Their wines consist of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon blanc. They produce excellent cru Bourgeois but also one white wine. Indeed, the Château du Taillan is one of the few wineries in Medoc who produces white wine.
The underground cellars together with the pink marble altarpiece are listed as French National Heritage Sites. They are a must visit places in the estate. For activities, enjoy a guided tour through the cellars of the Château as well as learning the winemaking processes. A guided wine tasting event is held later. You will taste two of their wines. Apart from wine tasting, they have a gourmet visit that includes a guided tour through the cellars and the vineyard. After this, there is wine tasting accompanied by snacks such as French cheese, French baguette and meat.
In case you cannot carry bottles they have the “Wine in Tube” and the “Bag on Bag” packages that make it easier for you to take some as memories.
