On the edge of the « Tauzin » oak forest

In the first editions of « Bordeaux and its wines » by Edward Feret, we find that the Cru of Tauzinat belonged before 1789 to the Carles family, an armed forces general under King Louis XVI. Surrounded by the most prestigious growths of the area, its vineyard produces a very well regarded wine, awarded a silver medal by the international jury for the 1889 world fair.

 

It was in 1953 that Antoine Moueix acquired this estate ordained with a rich past and recognized terroir for several centuries.

 

Located on the plateau of Saint-Emilion, the Château Tauzinat l'Hermitage has one of the best terroirs of the Bordeaux right bank. With 9 Hectares of merlot and cabernet franc on a clay and limestone soil, this vineyard gives a seductive wine with a beautiful aromatic complexity.

 

And these are the Tauzins oaks that are at the origin of the name of Château Tauzinat l'Hermitage. Reputed for the truffles that grow at their roots, they border the plots of the property since many centuries.
