In Bordeaux, the most plump, plush and sexy wines come the Commune of Margaux. The clay and limestone soil and effects of the nearby Garonne River combine to make this terroir very pleasing to the palate. So I am happy to offer a stunning wine from this region at less than the tax on a bottle of Chateau Margaux! A very special wine at an everyday drinking price. Don’t miss out on this one. Arrives today on our shelves.
With its history stretching back for several centuries, Château La Tour de Mons is a single block vineyard, surrounded by a wall and located in the northern part of the Margaux appellation near the banks of the Garonne, as are all the very best Médoc Crus. The origins of the château date back to the 13th century and many generations have been involved. Amongst its illustrious owners was Pierre de Mons, who acquired the property in 1623 and gave it his name. The estate belonged to his lineage until the end of the 20th century.

A juicy, sexy style of Margaux, with a dark ruby/plum/purple color, some nice blackcurrant and black cherry fruit, sweet tannin and a lush, heady mouthfeel, this is another sleeper of the vintage and an excellent, possibly outstanding Margaux to drink over the next decade. Reviewed April 2015
Château La Tour de Mons is a classic wine, elegant and pure and fully respectful of this great terroir of Margaux. With a vineyard planted of 56% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 6% Petit Verdot, Château La Tour de Mons matures for 12 months in French oak barrels.
