It was in 1923 that Antoine Moueix, a wine merchant from Corrèze, acquired Château Taillefer. This family estate, with a rich history of more than 3 centuries, is now in the hands of the 5th generation. With energy and enthusiasm, Claire Moueix and her husband, Cyril Basteau, merge history and modernity to shape this grand cru.
Château Taillefer is situated on the southern side of the plateau of Pomerol. In this location, the soil is particularly rich in iron oxides. This Pomerol specificity is also at the origin of the name of the Château: « the elders recount that the plow « carves the iron » (« taille le fer » in french) so much it lifts iron oxides in this vineyard. »
The new generation is committed to revealing the terroir of Château Taillefer and crafting with simplicity and meticulousness this great Pomerol: a wine for laying down that is dense, complex and elegant.
During your visit, you will also discover our second property : Château Tauzinat l'Hermitage, Saint-Emilion-Grand-Cru and will learn about the specificities of two emblematic terroirs of the righe bank.
