At Chateau La Tour de Bessan, a Margaux appellation, the harvest took place from September 10th to 30th, 2015. This La tour de Bessan vintage is 61% Merlot and 39% Cabernet Sauvignon. It displays a dark red colour and releases vibrant fruity fragrances on the nose. This wine possesses a good aromatic power on black fruits, accompanied by a sensation of freshness. The palate offers smooth and silky tannins. They are straight forward with a precise structure. The finish is dominated by fruits; it is a fruity and well-structured Margaux.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Château La Tour de Bessan has a straightforward, blackberry and bilberry scented bouquet that takes time to settle in the glass, but it does coalesce nicely and the oak is neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, plenty of blackberry and boysenberry notes infused with cedar and graphite, leading to a precise finish.
