Château La Tour de Mons Margaux 2016
|Region||France, Bordeaux, Margaux|
|Brand||Château La Tour de Mons|
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.
The 2016 La Tour de Mons has come together very nicely during its élevage. Silky, perfumed and very pretty, the Tour de Mons offers plenty of Margaux character in a mid-weight style that is quite appealing. Best of all, Tour de Mons is a fine value.
Light savory details and tobacco leaf notes dart through a core of pomegranate and cherry flavors, with a dusting of sandalwood on the finish. Not big, but fresh and focused. Drink now through 2027. 10,000 cases made.
Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 La Tour de Mons gives cassis, redcurrants, dried herbs, unsmoked cigars and rock aromas on the nose. The palate is medium-bodied, tart and chewy with an earthy finish.
