Ch. La Tour de Mons (1.5 L)
Tasted at the Cru Bourgeois annual tasting, the 2015 La Tour de Mons did not show well during en primeur and I did not award any score. I am glad that I demurred! It has an impressive and voluminous bouquet with extrovert but not overpowering blackberry and raspberry scents complemented by crushed rose petals and crushed stone. There is fine oak integration here. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, very harmonious with freshness from start to finish. You just want to take another sip as soon as possible—job done. Bravo! Tasted September 2017.
