    2014 Saint-Estephe, Cru Bourgeois from Bordeaux.

    The 2014 Cru Bourgeois Tour de Pez displays a dark red colour. Although restrained at first, this 2014 Chateau Tour de Pez nose reveals a subtle and elegant aromatic bouquet after swirling. The acid attack is frank and gives a nervous aspect to the wine. This Saint-Estephe structure is quite tannic (with a pleasant sap), supple with a noble grain. The retro-olfaction echoes the nose while confirming the aromatic freshness. The fresh finish carries a good persistence which is the sign of a good ageing potential. This is a well-produced wine.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2014 Tour de Pez had a rather stilted and, dare I say, under-ripe nose that lacked the fruit intensity of its peers. The palate is dry and lean on the entry, quite hard in texture, gaining a little more harmony towards the finish. On this showing, it just does not have the substance and density I seek in a Saint Estèphe. Tasted September 2016.
