Situated in one of the northern sectors of Margaux, this estate was created in the 13th century. This sumptuous wine has enormous power that is mitigated by the taut, mineral texture and black-currant flavors. It is a finely wrought wine that will take time to age. Drink from 2024. *Cellar Selection* (RV)
Dense and chewy with very firm and silky tannins. Full-bodied and powerful. Better than the 2015.
Here we are stepping up a gear for this estate, with careful but not shy fruit extraction, some real intensity to the silky raspberry and bilberry flavours, and tannins that cradle without overpowering the fruit. Brilliant value for money in a wine where you get a hint of the floral silkiness of Margaux. Owned by CA Grands Crus, the same group that owns Grand Puy Ducasse, Tour de Mons is benefitting from recent investments together with the sure touch of technical director Anne le Naour. 56% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Petit Verdot.

The 2016 La Tour de Mons has a lifted, quite spicy bouquet with kirsch, red berry fruit and touches of graphite. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, great volume and ripeness. The finish comes through more like a 2015 in style with a smooth texture and quite a luscious graphite tinged note. Very fine. Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois tasting in London. (NM)
Mid cherry red. Lovely scented first impression of both black and red fruit and a touch of herbaceousness. Chewy, thick tannins, rounded and rich but fresh too. Needs a bit more time to gain elegance. 16.5/20 points. (JH)
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 La Tour de Mons gives cassis, redcurrants, dried herbs, unsmoked cigars and rock aromas on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied, tart and chewy with an earthy finish. (LPB)
Light savory details and tobacco leaf notes dart through a core of pomegranate and cherry flavors, with a dusting of sandalwood on the finish. Not big, but fresh and focused. Drink now through 2027. (JM, Web Only-2019)
