An expressive and refined red wine from Margaux

The estate

With its origins dating back to the 13th century, Château La Tour de Mons is one of the oldest wine estates in Margaux. Classified a Cru Bourgeois Supérieur, Château La Tour de Mons underwent major renovations in the 1990s. Managed by CA Grands Crus since 2012, under the direction of Technical Director Anne Le Naour, Château La Tour de Mons produces wines that reflect the authenticity of the Margaux appellation on the left bank of Bordeaux.

The vineyard

Château La Tour de Mons 2021 is a Margaux wine made from a 58-hectare vineyard, all in one piece. The vines are 32 years old on average and are planted on Garonne gravel and clay-limestone soils.

The vintage

Although the 2021 vintage began with extreme conditions and thus, the vineyard required more surveillance by the estate's teams, the particularly mild conditions from the end of summer onwards were ideal and helped the ripening of the grapes. Compared to recent sunny vintages, 2021 benefited from cooler temperatures which gave a lively fruity expression. The freshness, elegance and aromatic structure of the Merlot grapes harmoniously blend with the flavoursome and charming Cabernet grapes and the complex and unctuous Petit Verdot.

Vinification and ageing

Harvesting from September 28th to October 12th. Aged in barrels (25% new) stemming from large French forests (Belleme, Moselle, Allier, Rambouillet).

The blend

Château La Tour de Mons 2021 comprises a blend of Merlot (60%), Cabernet Sauvignon (35%), Petit Verdot (3%) and Cabernet Franc (2%).
