Chateau Tayac Cuvee Larauza Margaux 2007

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £10 from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/58460 .Margaux is the largest AOC on the Medoc peninsular and the home of 21 cru classe in the famous 1855 classification although Chateau Tayac is not one of them but a Cru Bourgeois estate. There are 37 hectares and it has been owned by the Portet family for several generations. Cuvee Larauza is not the Grande Vin but a special cuvee but I have not been able to find out the exact cepagement. Anyway I started it last night with my supper of roast pork and I did enjoy it. There is a blackcurrant and plum style fruit there and the tannins are fairly soft but perhaps too soft to give sufficient structure. There are better Margauxs but possibly not for a mere £10 although it was a reasonable quality red wine.

This is a 37 hectare Cru Bourgeois estate owned by the Portet family for generations making a Grande Vin, a second wine called Cuvee Labory and a special cuvee called Cuvee Larauza. The family also own Clos Laborie a 2 hectare plot that was once part of Chateau Desmirail and the grapes from there are vinified and bottled separately
