Our oenologists' opinion
Dark garnet colour with brick tints. Open nose with notes of mocha, plum gratin and vanilla, frank and full-bodied. Supple attack with long and fat tannins, character on grilled pepper and plum, good balance. The finish has present but satiny tannins, medium persistence on grilled pepper and undergrowth.

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Domain and appellation
CHÂTEAU TOUR DE LEYSSAC
Located in the heart of the Médoc vineyards, in the Saint-Estèphe appellation, the estate reveals the authenticity of a family heritage since 1960. The Martin family manages 21 hectares of vines with an average age of 25 years. The grape varieties are 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc and 8% Petit Verdot. The grapes are harvested mechanically with a manual sorting table. The vinification is done in the traditional way in stainless steel vats. After a maceration of 25 to 30 days, the wine is then matured for 12 months in barrels renewed by thirds.
