Chateau Tayac Margaux

Chateau Tayac's vineyards cover an area of 37 hectares, on the gravelly soils around Soussans. In the Portet family for 4 generations, this is very much a family affair. Guy Portet uses the Méthode Cousinie; a system of observation and analysis to maintain optimum vineyard health with minimal treatments. Nicolas Portet is the winemaker; the wine style is harmonious and well-balanced allowing the excellent quality of the fruit to shine through.

The Cousinie method Guy uses to monitor the condition of his vines is a holistic technique, involving the biochemical mapping of soils and the analysis of the leaves and trunks of the vines, to intervene as little as possible whilst working to rebalance the biodiversity and composition of the soil, improving the health of the vines, and strengthening their natural defences against diseases and pests.


Fermented in a mix of cement and stainless steel tanks and aged for 10-12 months in French oak barrels, of which 35% are new.

Tasting notes

Fresh and plummy, warm and soft with a good core of fruit, very polished and lots of potential with well-integrated oak on the finish.

Try with roast lamb served pink with herbs, rare sirloin steak.
