What a beautiful winery as well as friendly. Easy to access via city bus (however at the bus stop someone switched the direction signs, so don't believe everything you read) flavourful wine (we bought two) but the yards are to die for - think Downton Abbey but french. They didn't mind that we had kids with us - we were... More

We turned up for a tour and were told we'd have to wait a short while so we browsed the gift shop where we were also able to taste a few wines. After the tasting we asked again about the tour but were told they were closing for lunch so no tours until 3pm. Would have been better if they... More

I really enjoyed the tour of the property. The guide was, unlike some other posts, very pleasant and spoke excellent English. It apparently is the oldest Chateau in Medoc. The wine however it just average. This is a great place to add another tour onto your trip but I wouldn't make it your one stop if you are looking for... More

We spent a couple of hours with our parents in Bordeaux and wanted to visit a Chateau in the surrounding. The Tourist Office advised us the Château de Taillan, not far from the city. We had a very good, friendly and helpful guide. Historically we learned a lot of things. The old vine cellar is amazing and you could smell... More

Having enjoyed their wine while staying in Golf du Medoc Hotel, decided to visit the producer. Five sisters actually own and operate the vineyard which is one of the oldest in the Medoc. A wide range of degustations is available from the first and second ranking labels. A son of one of the sisters was most helpful and friendly and... More

Chateau du Taillan is a gorgeous place and full of surprises. I came expecting the typical Bordeaux wine tasting experience, but there's more to this place than I thought. If at all possible, I recommend coming on a day with sufficiently decent weather to take a long stroll through the property. There are some magnificent ancient trees and we actually... More

When the tour guide made us wait outside in the rain and cold, I could sense some sort of foreshadowing for the tour that awaited us. While the information was interesting enough, the tour guide incessantly ended his patronizing comments with a generous pinch of sarcasm and condescension.

Dear Piers, I'm the guide who made the tour yesterday with you. I can be really sorry about the fact you waited for few minutes outside under the rain. I spent a really nice moment with all the group and have the feeling that everybody had a good moment too. I apologize if you found my behavior condescendant, which was... More

I'm not much of a drinker but you can truly appreciate just how much effort and attention goes into making such brilliant wine once you've done one of their tours! A very interesting tour with some great wines to taste!!

Visited as part of a private dinner. The owner told us the history and then we got to see the very old historical portion. Many on the tour thought their red wine was the best we had all day.
