2010 Marquis de Mons Margaux
Marquis de Mons is the second wine of the Château La Tour de Mons. It comes from the same terroir and is vinified with as much care as the Grand Vin, and the blend is similar. It uses the younger vines of the estate. Marquis de Mons' wine style tends towards the research of balance, with supple tannins and good aromatic expression. It is a wine to enjoy whilst young (3 to 5 years).
The Château La Tour de Mons is a single block vineyard, located in the northern part of the Margaux appellation, on the banks of the Garonne, as the best Médoc Crus. The origin of the château dates back to the 13th century. Amongst its illustrious owners was Pierre de Mons, who acquired the property in 1623 and gave it his name. The estate belonged to his lineage until the end of the 20th century.
Deep red color, deep nose, a little reserved but fruity, with a hint of violet that breaks through the agitation. Nice presence in the mouth with fat and volume, which this vintage very warm brought to the wine. The magnum seems to concentrate this power, which needs a little time to fully express itself. But young wine
lovers will appreciate its lively attack and the pleasure of a Margaux who expresses perfectly its terroir and its vintage.
