Château Tour de Pez is a classic and elegant Cru Bourgeois, widely praised by Bordeaux lovers. Unlike most Saint-Estèphe wines, over half of the estate is planted with Merlot - ensuring smooth tannins, minty aromas and a round structure. The majority of Merlot in this blend makes it ready to drink earlier than its peers from the appellation. Really worth a try!

88/100 "Ripe, fresh and focused, with a lively, pebbly edge that adds energy to the mix of damson plum and bitter cherry notes. Light floral and iron hints check in through the finish. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2020."
91/100 "The wine, with its 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, is solidly structured with plenty of the firmness that is characteristic of young Saint-Estèphe. To go with this structure, the wine is also full of perfumed black fruits that are already delicious. It will be a rich serious wine as it develops over the next several years."
