Tasting Notes
88/100 - Robert Parker
This vineyard just outside Pauillac has produced a seductive, sexy wine with an elegant combination of black cherry and black currant fruit. Some dusty, loamy soil notes also make an appearance as well as some high-quality unsmoked cigar tobacco. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. (A member of the Association of Crus Bourgeois du Medoc.)
15/20 - 3 Stars «Recommended» wine - Decanter
A pretty perfume aroma of mixed red and black fruit, spice and savoury notes. Light, fresh and well textured with sweet and sour plum flavours. Very tight.

The history of the Château
Château Blaignan is a fine estate of 97 ha (240 acres) in the northern part of the Médoc. There have been vineyards here since the 14th century. This property once belonged to the Taffard family and became renowned when it was included in the Cru Bourgeois classification of 1932. The limestone clay soil lies on a calcareous limestone base whose sedimentation dates back to the quaternary period.

Food pairings for my wine
Delicious with a juicy steak or a rack of lamb
