2018 Marquis De Mons, Margaux
Chateau La Tour de Mons is one of the oldest estates in the Medoc, with a history that dates back almost a thousand years to the 13th century. In 2019 the estate was acquired by the Perrado family, owners of Chateau Labegorce and Chateau Marquis d’Alesme. Marquis de Mons is the chateau’s second label, made from the estate’s younger vines. The sizable 145-acre vineyard is planted to a 56/38/6 mix of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot planted in one large single block of vines. This is an elegantly balanced Margaux with supple tannins and good aromatic expression, a wine to be enjoyed while young.
