The famous iron deposits, characteristic of the terroir of Pomerol, those are at the origin of the name of Taillefer. They impart complexity to the wine together with minerality and aromas of truffles and violets. It was recounted by elders that the plow « toils the iron » from having lifted and turned over countless amounts of iron oxide in the vineyards of Taillefer.

The 2016 Taillefer is plump, juicy and absolutely delicious. Succulent red cherry, plum, mocha and espresso are all pushed forward. A wine with no hard edges, silky tannins and fabulous balance, the 2016 has a lot to recommend it. There is a wonderful sense of immediacy. The 2016 is not the most complex Pomerol readers will come across, but it is delicious and very nicely rendered. Tasted two times.

The medium garnet-purple colored 2016 Taillefer opens with tar and earth over a core of black plums and blackberries with a waft of chargrill. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, it's firm, chewy and earthy with good length.

87-89. Barrel Sample. Richly concentrated, this wine has a pepper edge that suggests high alcohol and gives it a fat character, with solid tannins lending some structure.
