Winemaker Notes

The Château La Tour de Mons 2016 is created as a blend of 70 % Merlot, 17 % Cabernet Sauvignon, 8 % Cabernet France and 5% Petit Verdot which creates its intense ruby red color. The very expressive fruity nose reveals cocoa, blackcurrants and black plums notes softly smoked. The attack is elegant and presents a well-balanced structure with a beautiful dense and round mouth balanced. The palate ends on soft tannins.

This Bordeaux red pairs well with red meats, poultry and game.

WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
Situated in one of the northern sectors of Margaux, this estate was created in the 13th century. This sumptuous wine has enormous power that is mitigated by the taut, mineral texture and black-currant flavors. It is a finely wrought wine that will take time to age. Drink from 2024.

Dense and chewy with very firm and silky tannins. Full-bodied and powerful. Better than the 2015.

The Château La Tour de Mons is a single block vineyard, located in the northern part of the Margaux appellation, on the banks of the Garonne, as the best Médoc Crus. The property is a single-block walled vineyard covering 48 hectares (120 acres) and is planted roughly to 56 percent Merlot, 38 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 6 percent Petit Verdot with both the grand vin Château La Tour de Mons and the second wine Marquis de Mons reflecting this ratio in their blends.

The origin of the château dates back to the 13th century. Amongst its illustrious owners was Pierre de Mons, who acquired the property through marriage in 1623 and gave it his name. The estate belonged to his lineage until the end of the 20th century.

Since 2004, it belongs to CA Grands Crus, a branch of the Credit Agricole Group, which bought, among others, the Château Grand-Puy Ducasse, 5th Classified Growth in Pauillac and the Château Meyney in Saint-Estèphe.

Bordeaux, France

Silky, seductive and polished are the words that characterize the best wines from Margaux, the most inland appellation of the Médoc on the Left Bank of Bordeaux.

Margaux’s gravel soils are the thinnest of the Médoc, making them most penetrable by vine roots—some reaching down over 23 feet for water. The best sites are said to be on gentle outcrops, or croupes, where more gravel facilitates good drainage.

The Left Bank of Bordeaux subscribes to an arguably outdated method of classification but it is nonetheless important in regards to history of the area. In 1855 the finest chateaux were deemed on the basis of reputation and trading price—at that time. In 1855, Chateau Margaux achieved first growth status, yet it has been Chateau Palmer (officially third growth from the 1855 classification) that has consistently outperformed others throughout the 20th century.

Chateau Margaux in top vintages is capable of producing red Cabernet Sauvignon based wines described as pure, intense, spell-binding, refined and profound with flavors and aromas of black currant, violets, roses, orange peel, black tea and incense.

Other top producers worthy of noting include Chateau Rauzan-Ségla, Lascombes, Brane-Cantenac, and d’Issan, among others.

The best wines of Margaux combine a deep ruby color with a polished structure, concentration and an unrivaled elegance.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
