In December 2004 Corinne and Alain ROSES, owners of Chateau Haut-Bellevue, Cru Bourgeois in Lamarque, decided to take the adventure a step further, adding to their range with a 5 hectares (12.36 acre) estate in Soussans (appellation Contrôlée Margaux).

The old cellar in the hamlet of ‘Le Grand Soussans’ was a post-house in the XIXth century.

The wines of Bordeaux are all about balance, and we know all wine is, but properly made Bordeaux is all about restraint – not excess. That’s not to say you can’t make a modern wine without maintaining these fundamentals, as Grand Tayac proves.

Lovely lifted aromatics, delicious dense fruit, integrated oak (the best money can buy) and a finish that lasts and lasts. A winner with duck, beef and wild boar sausages – probably not simultaneously. A hard one to lie down though, such is its appeal !
