- ABV 14%
- Closure: Cork
Tour de Mons lies in the north of Margaux, and dates back to the 13th century. Its wines have always stuck out in the Margaux landscape for the right reasons: their classicism sets them apart. For some time they have pleased a faithful crowd of customers (those finding more value in a silky Margaux than robust Pauillac). Athough the Estate does not generally command high scores from the usual suspects, the quality needs to be placed in context. If critics were to judge the Aston Martin DB5 by today’s standard, it would probably seem clunky and under appointed, yet still the most graceful vehicle on the road. Just like Tour de Mons’ restrained vintage elegance – this is Bordeaux classicism in a glass! A blend of 56% Merlot & 38% Cabernet Sauvignon with the balance made up in Petit Verdot.
Opaque black purple colour with bright purple red hue. Nosing reveals fresh ripe blackcurrant and dark cherry top notes followed by some cedar, earth and spice. Medium bodied with an elegant structured mouthfeel the palate possesses plenty of rich blackcurrant flavours over a background of cedar, light earth and spice. Dryish solid but fine grained tannins provide the framework and impart some chewiness on the finish. Medium to long ripe blackcurrant, earthy cedar and spice aftertaste.
Cellar 6-8 years (2020-2022).
...has power in reserve, but stays remarkably restrained for now, with a torrent of boysenberry, fig and raspberry fruit held in check by charcoal-studded grip and well-embedded acidity. The long, dense smoked apple wood finish should let this cruise nicely in the cellar.
