Tasting Notes
89 - eRobertparker.com
Tasted at the Crus Bourgeois 2010 tasting in London. The Tour de Pez 2010 has a well defined, slightly more extrovert bouquet with mint tinged red berry fruit and hints of chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and plenty of pure, earthy red berry fruit that are crisp and beautifully defined on the lingering finish. This exceeds my expectations after its barrel showing. Drink now-2020. Tasted September 2012
15,5 - 16 "coup de cœur" - LE POINT
Fruits rouges, bouche ronde, souple, frais, assez élégant, tendu, vif, friand, joli fruit sur une structure tannique serrée mais fondue.
18/20 - Weinwisser
Viel Merlot, mehr las die Hälfe in der assemblage. Tiefes Purpur, satt in der Mitte, Granatschimmer am rand. Delikates Bouquet, vielschichtig, floral und rote Pflaumen, etwas Mokka, wie immer im Hintergrund. Fülliger Gaumen mit einer schon fast cremigen Textur, gut balanciert. Selten war ein saint-estephe so tänzerish. Chambertin-haft in seiner Art. Zweimal verkostet

One word to describe my wine
Harmonious

The history of the Château
Château TOUR PEZ is a Cru Bourgeois of 30 ha, located in Saint-Estèphe in Médoc, one of the most famous wine regions of France. The name of the hamlet of Pez originated in the sixteenth century manor owned by families and Pontac Fumel, formerly owner of Haut-Brion. It was not until 1931 that the property will definitely called "Château TOUR PEZ" because the tower built in the thirteenth century dominated buildings and parcels identified in the land under the name of PEZ. In 1989, Philippe BOUCHARA, from the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industry, bought the property. Upon his arrival, he was able to empower themselves worthy of a Grand Cru Classé. He undertook the restoration of buildings, the reconstruction of the tower and the renovation of technical installations. Aged on average 35 years, the vineyard is based on two types of soil: the famous serious Gironde, which bring elegance, finesse and silky tannins and marl clay and limestone that generate power and structure. On such soils traditional grape varieties thrive in the Médoc: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Manually harvested in crates, the grapes are sorted first time on the vine, then a second manual sorting is done in the cellar. They are then vinified in stainless steel thermo-regulated and raised in French oak barrels for 14 months. With an annual production of 100,000 bottles Château Tour de Pez and 80,000 bottles for Hauts de Pez, the second wine, the property plays complementary supply while taking quality work for both.
