Vineyards

Vineyards of Chateau Tour Mondet are blessed with exceptional terroir and microclimate and benefit from unusual topography for Bordeaux. Variations of altitude create a unique patchwork of soils. They are alternatively composed of limestone, clay and rolled gravel. A rigorous work in the vineyard is regulated by first concerns: health of the soils and preservation of eco-systems. This results in healthier vines with intense depth, aroma and personality.
