The grace and balance of a fine Margaux

A superb estate in the symbolic Margaux appellation in Bordeaux, Château La Tour de Mons boasts a prestigious wine heritage.

Under the realm of the Crédit Agricole Grands Crus since 2012, the wines have been among the most distinctive in the appellation in recent years due to the talented winemaker Anne Le Naour, who is under the advice of experienced oenologist consultant Éric Boissenot.

The 2017 vintage will be remembered for the frosts that hit the Bordeaux vineyards, and they did not spare the area around La Tour de Mons. However, the efforts of the technical team were able to produce a wine that signifies a fine Margaux.

From the vineyard to the winery, the greatest attention was paid to extract the best of this vintage. The manual harvest started on September 13 with the Merlots and then finished on October 2 with the Cabernet Sauvignons. Vinification then took place in stainless steel vats. The Château la Tour de Mons 2017 is a great wine from the estate. It is made from a blend of 50% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc.

Displaying the elegance and finesse of the fine Margaux, the Château La Tour de Mons 2017 reveals the radiance of black fruit notes while underscoring the ageing in oak with smoky notes. The frankness of the attack seduces the palate with its juice and its ample roundness while balancing with chewy tannins that stretch into a slightly oaky finish. With a beautiful depth, the Château La Tour de Mons 2017 is a true success with good ageing potential.

Parker : 88 / 100
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2017 La Tour de Mons is medium to deep garnet-purple in color, and the nose is closed before revealing baked plums, blackcurrant jelly and kirsch with hints of forest floor, cedar and pencil shavings. The palate is medium-bodied, firm and refreshing with bags of fruit and good length.
