Beautifully lifted violets and blackberry fruit. A complex palate with hints of mocha, wood smoke, blackcurrent leaf and seductive tannins.
Chteau La Tour de Mons is one of the leading Cru Bourgeois properties in the Mdoc, located in the Margaux commune of Soussans. It has a long and illustrious history and is named after Pierre de Mons, who purchased the estate in 1615. For several generations it has been owned and run by the Clauzel-Binaud family.
In the Vineyard
The vineyard area extends 46 hectares (110 acres) with a grape variety distribution of 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 55% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot.
In the Winery
The grapes are hand harvested and are then matured in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks. The wine is then matured in small oak barrels (30% new) for 12 months. It is bottled unfiltered. The wine is typically smooth, well-rounded and ripe and shows at its best with 5-10 years of bottle ageing.
Nicely 'pink' red meat.
