Winemaking
After hand-picking and careful sorting of the grapes in the winery, batches are placed in separate stainless steel tanks depending on their origin. Plot selection and traceability is thus meticulous. Low temperature fermentation over an extended period allows soft extraction. Each batch is then drawn off into barrels. Press wine is carefully selected and then blended.
Ageing
The wine will then age for 12 months in French oak barrels, 40% of which are new each year.

Tasting Notes
87/100 - Neal Martin
"The nose is a tad disjointed at present, leafy and lacking real depth. The palate is medium-bodied with chalky tannins, good depth but I feel, just slightly over-extracted towards the finish...only slightly mind you. This may merit a higher score after bottling. ”

One word to describe my wine
Powerful and elegant

The history of the Château
With its history stretching back for several centuries, Château La Tour de Mons is a single block vineyard, surrounded by a wall and located in the northern part of the Margaux appellation near the banks of the Garonne, as are all the very best Médoc Crus. The origins of the château date back to the 13th century and many generations have been involved. Amongst its illustrious owners was Pierre de Mons, who acquired the property in 1623 and gave it his name. The estate belonged to his lineage until the end of the 20th century.

Food pairings for my wine
