Château Taillefer finds its origin in the iron oxides, characteristics of the terroir of Pomerol, which bring complexity to the wine. In the vineyard of Château Taillefer, the ancients said that the carue “size iron” as it raises iron oxides. Today, the property is run by Claire and Antoine Moeix, children of Bernard Moeix. Together, they perpetuate the know-how of their ancestors with humility and passion.
Located on the plateau of Pomerol, the vineyard develops in one piece around the Castle.
