Tasting Notes
88/100 - Erobertparker.com
Millésime 2009 : Very conservative nose, but well defined and unashamedly "classic" in style with well-integrated oak. The palate is more modern in style, but with pllush tanins ans a very smooth, cohesive finish.
3 stars - Recommended - Decanter
Fresh, green and fruity nose. It has good depth and balance with well-knit oak.

One word to describe my wine

The history of the Château
The vineyard of Château LA TONNELLE was part of the Picourneau estate in the 19th century. In 1850, this famous property already producing 80 casks ranked No.1 in the commune of Vertheuil according to the first issue of the Feret guide. Since 1982, the Fabre family has replanted the vineyard and built a new winery to ensure that the estate again.
