2021 Château Taillefer  (Pomerol) 89
Medium-bodied, soft, fresh and fruity, with a sweetness to the bright red fruits and a touch of cocoa on the palate and in the finish. This will be quite nice to enjoy in its youth and over the next 12 -15 years or so. Drink from 2023-2035. 88-90

2018 Château Taillefer  (Pomerol) 91
Showing much better in barrel than in bottle, the wine offers loads of ripe, supple textured, red fruits, hints of licorice, and coffee bean. Round, medium-bodied, fresh and fruity, this is already showing quite well and has room for improvement with aging.

2016 Château Taillefer  (Pomerol) 89
Perhaps the best wine ever produced here. Floral in nature, with a juicy, red and black plum with truffle character, soft tannins, and ample freshness in the medium bodied, red berry finish.

2011 Château Taillefer  (Pomerol) 85
Medium bodied, simple, easy going, cherry and red dominated wine, which takes little effort to enjoy. There is not much complexity, but there are no faults found here either.

2010 Château Taillefer  (Pomerol) 88
Light, feminine, medium bodied and focused on the red red berry side side of the style range. There are no real faults here, but it lacks the depth and sensuality of what makes Pomerol great.

2009 Château Taillefer  (Pomerol) 88
This medium bodied, lighter style of Pomerol serves up a healthy dose of bright red cherries and raspberry, with hints of oak and earth. I'd drink this on the young side.
