Château Tifayne

His distinctive sign is the hippo! A small, plump hippopotamus straight out of the fairy tale told to him by his grandmother and now stamped on all his labels. This type of joke is unusual in Bordeaux, but Renaud Limbosch remains a child at heart, whether the grumps like it or not. Located in Monbadon, 15 kilometres from Saint- Émilion, Château Tifayne comprises 13 hectares of vines on the Castillon and Francs appellations. Renaud and his wife Franziska, both of whom have diplomas in agricultural engineering from Gembloux, bought the vineyard in 1997.

Roc de Tifayne

"Roc" owes its name to the clayey-chalky plateau where the rock can be seen on the surface, typical of the Castillon Côtes of Bordeaux. Renaud carries out plot-based vinification using the four classic red grape varieties of Bordeaux. And he gives his wines time to age: after a one-year ageing in barrels (20% new), the Roc de Tifayne spends a second year in vats. Slow to open although we are here for the 2014 vintage, it is recommended to decant it before tasting.

   Dark red robe.

   Ripe and fruity, this is a warm, rounded wine

   Well structured and balanced. Firm tannins.

   A homemade pizza or red meat.

   17-18 °C
