Our oenologists' opinion
Garnet colour with brick red reflections. Nose of roasting, then notes of boxwood and pepper. Good balance on a rather warm wine, open character with curry spices and hints of pepper. Finish on the roasted wood with a little gingerbread and tannins without fatness.

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 Prignac
Managed by Yannick Gay since 1979, le Château Tour Prignac is one of the most vast vinyards in Médoc. The Hauts de Tour Prignac is the estate's second wine.
- Terroir: The area extends over 300 hectares with more than 147 vines, sitting on clay-limestone, gravelly soil. Each hectare has 7200 vines.
- Wine-Making: In the wine cellar, the wine making is done in plots. The wine submits to an extremely fast malolactic fermentation process in thermo-regulated tanks at 20°C. Alcoholic fermentation lasts for 20 to 30 days. After sampling all the lots, the wine is entered into the barrels. The aging lasts a minimum of 12 months in french oak barrels. Eric Boissenot, a renouned oenologist in the Château Latour and the Château Margaux has shared his art of blending with the estate since 2008.
