The château was established in 1839 in the northern end of the Médoc, in the village of Ordonnac, sharing the same terroirs as the premier grands cru classés. In 2013 the dynamic Romain Roux purchased the property and has already been able to bring back some of its former glory by obtaining the Cru Bourgeois classification.
A 50:50 blend of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, Taffard de Blaignan has a dark ruby red core. The intense nose of toasted oak, blackberry, plum and mocha notes leads into a supple, full-bodied wine with ripe fruit notes. Dense fruit is balanced by a classical tannic backbone before a spicy finish. A great match for grilled meats, chicken and rich stews.
