Tayac's 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 Méthode Cousinié; this is a system of observation and analysis to maintain optimum vineyard health and balance with minimal treatments. Nicolas Portet is the winemaker; the wine style is harmonious and well-balanced allowing the excellent fruit quality to shine through. Fermentation in a mix of cement and stainless-steel tanks. Aging for 10-12 months in French oak barrels of which 35% are new.
Cabernet Sauvignon 55%, Merlot 40%, Petit Verdot 5%
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.
