Chateau Tour de Pez 2021

A Saint-Estephe Cru Bourgeois with an alluring complexity and balance

The estate

Acquired in 1989 by the Bouchara family, Chateau Tour de Pez has enjoyed a true renaissance following the extensive work carried out on the estate, both in the vineyard and the cellar. From one vintage to the next, the estate has stood out among the finest references in the Saint-Estephe appellation due to its precise and high-quality wines. Boasting a strong identity thanks to the presence of Merlot, the wines by this Cru Bourgeois provide an utterly elegant experience and promise a lengthy aging potential.

The vineyard

Chateau Tour de Pez 2021 is a Saint-Estephe wine that stems from a 30-hectare vineyard. The vines are planted on soils composed of Gironde gravel and clay-limestone.

The vintage

Although the vineyard started to bud early, it was hit by a major spring frost in April and early May, which impacted some plots. The cool, wet conditions until mid-August increased the vineyard’s disease pressure, which was managed thanks to the chateau’s rigorous teams. Thereafter, the milder weather and a pleasant temperature range were ideal and helped to refine the ripening process up until the harvest.

The blend

Merlot (60%)

Cabernet Sauvignon (27%)

Cabernet Franc (13%).
