  • 2020 Château la Tour de Mons, Cru Bourgeois Supériore, Margaux

    2020 følger de gode takter fra 2018-19 med en meget mørk og kødfuld vin, som i det primærfrugtige stadie er domineret af solbær, sorte kirsebær, blomme og brombær. Den kan bl.a. give associationer til cedertræ, røg, svampe, lakrids, bark og jordbund. Der er tilpas syre og faste tanniner, der gerne må få tid til yderligere afrunding. En vellavet vin, der holder grundstilen i Margaux fint.

    Årgangen består af 57% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc og 3% Petit Verdot. De meget moderate 32 hl./ha. er for første gang alle høstet med håndkraft, og vinen er lagret i 25-30% nye barriques.

    Score: 92-93 Points6 May, 2021 û Really pretty and linear with a seamless, pretty core of blue fruit and firm, chewy tannins. Medium to full body. Racy and well done.

    2020 Château La Tour de Mons (Margaux) 92Deep in color, the wine shows its bouquet of black currants, smoke, licorice, wet earth and oak notes easily. Lush, fleshy, ripe, and round, the fruit is fleshy, sweet and richly textured, finishing with loads of ripe blackberry notes on the mid-palate and finish. Clearly, this is a step up in class since the new owners took over.

    91Tasted by: Jane Anson(at Primeur week tastings in Bordeaux, 01 May 2021)Drinking Window: 2024 - 2034A majority Merlot in the blend, this feels unforced, with sappy brambled fruits and plenty of hawthorn edging giving fresh acidities. Grilled and bitter tannins on the finish but there is sinew and interest here, and it's a good wine, pretty serious with an attractive edge of smoked cedar. Bought by the team at Marquis d'Alesme in February 2020, this is the first year that they have followed entirely from beginning to end (with the decision taken to keep distinct from Labegorce, as was a question on their purchase, and a full 17ha of vines were pulled up out of 60ha in total, to be replanted over the next 10 years). First time hand harvesting (especially complicated with Covid-19 protocols). 3% Petit Verdot completes the blend. 3.6pH, 25% new oak. A yield of 32hl/ha.
