The 2014 Chateau La Tour de Mons offers an ample nose, concentrated with fresh black fruits and aromatic balance, without being over ripe. The palate offers a good attack with accurate acidity (throughout tasting) and carries a pleasant sappy tannic structure. This Margaux Cru Bourgeois is stronger this year but with a solid ageing potential.
The 2014 La Tour de Mons has a crisp bouquet with leafy black fruit tinged with graphite and sous-bois scents that gently unfold. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite supple tannin and well judged acidity. The oak is neatly integrated and it gradually builds to a very refined and satisfying finish. This is a well-crafted Margaux that will give plenty of drinking pleasure over the next decade. Tasted September 2016.
