Acquired in 1989 by the Bouchara family, Château Tour de Pez has experienced a real renaissance thanks to the work undertaken at the property, both in the vineyard and in the winery. From vintage to vintage, this estate has stood out among the most important references of the Saint-Estèphe appellation thanks to its precise, high-quality wines. Château Tour de Pez is now classified a Cru Bourgeois of the Saint-Estèphe appellation, while also being a member of the Grand Cercle des Vins de Bordeaux. Bearing a widely recognised signature style that emphasises Merlot in their blend, the wines of Château Tour de Pez are elegant, with great ageing potential.
Enjoying a superb location in the Saint-Estèphe appellation, the Château Tour de Pez vineyard covers 30 hectares of vines. The terroir is mainly composed of Girondine gravel and clay-limestone soils.
A chaotic year from a climatic point of view, 2019 nevertheless allowed for the harvest of high-quality fruit at Château Tour de Pez. A true winemaker’s vintage, 2019 required constant work and attention paid to the vines by the property's technical teams. The result exceeded expectations, with delicious and smooth Cabernet Sauvignon without a hint of bitterness.
Tasted en primeur, the Château Tour de Pez 2019 displays a ruby red colour, shimmering with purple reflections. The intensely fragrant nose is quite charming, with notes of ripe red fruit, like raspberry, further enhanced by fresh hints of menthol. On the palate, this wine displays a nice density, texture and roundness, along with a velvety tannic structure and tense finish. Truly an "iron fist in a velvet glove", the Château Tour de Pez 2019 is certainly a great success.
