Marks and reviews
With a vineyard of 30 hectares in production, located on the magnificent terroir of Graves Girondines and clay-limestone marl soils, Chateau Tour de Pez is one of the more peculiar properties of the Medoc due to the proportion of varietals planted. Thethe emblematic red grape of the Left Bank, Cabernet Sauvignon represents 40% of the vineyard's surface, and Merlot accounts for 55%, supplemented by 5% of Petit Verdot. The vineyard is densely planted (from 8,500 to 10,000 vines / ha) and extreme care is taken to treat the vine in a way that respects the environment. The property does not use chemical pesticides and the vines are green-pruned in order to allow the wines of Chateau Tour de Pez to stand out as some of the most respected Crus Bourgeois.
Distinguished as a Grand Cru Classe, the Chateau Tour de Pez 2017 expresses the profile of its vintage in the typical style and charm of the Saint-Estephe appellation. Matured in French Allier oak barrels (30% which are new) for 14 months, the Chateau Tour de Pez 2017 offers an aromatic freshness of fruit on the nose, while the palate opens with an elegant attack that highlights the finesse of the tannins and also maintains the structure typical of the wines of Saint-Estephe. A great red wine made to be kept until it reaches its peak between 2028 and 2035.
