Tayac is located in the far north of Margaux, in the commune of Soussans and is an established family business having been under the Portets` control for four generations. This long-standing family-affair has resulted in fine-tuned practices and production steeped in knowledge and experience. The Portets place a great value on their land and home, and this is evidenced in the expressive and aromatic wines they produce. (RRS 30/10/18)

The 2016 Tayac is a gem of a Margaux, one with great potential. There are copious black cherries, violets and blueberry on the nose that could only come from Margaux. I cannot remember it being so pure at this stage. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, just a little puppy fat on the finish but long and sustained. What a gorgeous Tayac with huge potential. Maybe the best ever? Chapeau. 92 points
