Our oenologists' opinion
Black garnet colour with a brick sheen, dense opaque and glossy. Frank and greedy nose of plums and roasted blackberries. Supple vanilla attack with satiny tannins. Good balance. Satiny finish and good character with racy length on black vanilla-flavoured fruit, good balance, silky tannins.
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.
Do you know ?
The name of the château comes from a tower located on one of the estate's plots. The origin of this tower dates back to the Gallo-Roman period when traces of boat moorings suggest that it may have been a lighthouse, and therefore the entrance to the outer harbour of the Gallo-Roman town of Brion.
Domain and appellation
CHÂTEAU TOUR DES TERMES
Classified as a Cru Bourgeois, Château Tour des Termes thrives today through the successive efforts of several generations to develop this prestigious estate.
- Terroir : Located in the commune of Saint-Estèphe, the vineyard is composed of a double terroir of gravel and clay-limestone soils.
- Vinification: Blended with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, this great wine benefits from a thermo-regulated plot-by-plot vinification and a 15-month maturation in oak barrels. 50% of the barrels are renewed each year.
