|40% Cabernet Sauvignon|
This is a luscious, fruity wine with the aromas of fresh fruit, spices and licorice. Supple palate and instantly pleasurable, this wine will improve over five years.
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.
Hand harvested and selection at sorting table with a maximum of care. Maceration for three weeks. Malolactic in stainless steel tanks. Aged 50% in oak barrels, 50% in cement tanks for 12 months.
