Our oenologists' opinion
Its dark garnet color introduces a nice wooded and roasted nose with aromas of dark fruits. The palate is balanced, fleshy, ample, nervous, straight, defined and characterized by sweet spices. The lingering finish offers noble, coated, velvety and tight tannins. Sappy wine.
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 Château was named after an old tower located on one of the plots called “Termes.” Boat moorings were found all around the tower, leading the different owners to think that it could have been a lighthouse and the entrance of the gallo-roman city harbor of Brion.
Domain and appellation
Château Tour des Termes
This Cru Bourgeois thrives today through the successive efforts of a Medoc family to develop this prestigious domain.
- Terroir: Two different types of soils, clay and limestone on the one hand, and graves on the other hand, introduce two different terroirs within the same domain.
- Vinification: Made of merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, and petit-verdot, this Cru Bourgeois benefits from a plot-by-plot winemaking process with a fermentation in stainless steel tank followed by an aging process in oak barrels.
