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!
