My first wine memory
Around the age of 8 years guided by my grand father I sampled my first sample with "a pipette". The main memory is the surprise of having sucked.

One word to describe my wine
The fruit

The history of the Château
At the end of last century, the"Château TOUR DES TERMES" was only a modest vineyard which produced 20 barrels a year, but already classified as a "Cru Bourgeois". Pierre ANNEY, descendant of an old family of wine-growers and owner of a nearby vineyard, cellars and outbuildings. In 1979, his son Jean and his grandson Christophe took over the property and expanded the surface area to 32 ha of vines. They decided to dedicate the best soil only to produce the "Château TOUR DES TERMES", made up of 15 ha of vines of around 30 years old. This rigorous selection enables the "Château TOUR DES TERMES" to be part of the best "Cru Bourgeois" of the appellation. Thanks to its Merlot grape variety, it is a Saint-Estèphe with sharpness and plumpness. The colour is dark garnet-red; the nose is fruity and very mature, associated with fine woody aromas with grilled and animal notes. On the palate the structure is both velvety and vigorous, offering an ample impression with forward tannins and grilled notes at the finish. These wines can be laid down 5 to 15 years and can be served with grilled white meat or chicken. It can be decanted before serving.
