This Cru Bourgeois of Saint-Estephe expands over a vineyard of just over 19 hectares, composed of Girondine gravel and clay-limestone marl. The vines are aged 36 years on average and are planted at a high density.
The Chateau Tour de Pez 2018 benefitted greatly from ideal end-of-season weather conditions and fruit of high quality, which facilitated the work in the cellars, especially when it came to the extractions. A blend of 65% Merlot (quite high for the Left Bank), 24% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Cabernet Franc, the Chateau Tour de Pez 2018 displays an intense ruby color. Its aromatic bouquet is marked by aromas of very fresh red fruits. On the palate the texture is silky, round and ample. Its elegant structure of fine-grained tannins and good acidity help create a balanced and very charming wine, with a very persistent finish. A very promising vintage!
