Variety: Merlot and Cabernet Franc

Chateau Taillefer's initial claim to fame was being recognized by the geographer of Louis XV in 1776. It has been cared for over two centuries. Enter the Bordeaux wine merchant, Antoine Moueix, known for playing an integral role in the beginning of one of the largest wine-growing dynasties ever. He saw potential in this great domain, subsequently purchasing Taillefer in 1923. Chateau Tallefer was not known for having the best Pomerol terroir due to its high content of sand in the soils. Its proximity to Libourne, a business center, made it easy for the wine to get to different markets via train. 

Coming from the Right Bank village of Pomerol, the wine is mostly Merlot with some Cabernet Franc blended in. Pomerol is an area rich in iron which is how this estate earned its name; “Taillefer” comes from the French phrase “to cut iron.” This Pomerol ages in oak barrels for about 12 months.
