Chateau Tour St Bonnet is very well known in the UK, the archetypal Médoc with plenty of firm flavour and a crispness. It is made from a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 5% Malbec and 5% Petit Verdot. The vineyard is superbly situated on the edge of the commune on the best gravelly soils adjacent to the Gironde. The 2009 vintage produced a fantastic Tour Saint Bonnet full of character and expression.
A classis claret, Chateau La Tour Saint Bonnet, continues to be one of Britain's most popular. Underlined by its brilliant success in Robert Parker's 2010 vintage review where it earned an excellent 90/100, equaling many higher profiled Chateaux. Close to a 50 - 50 Cabernet/Merlot blend, from the gravelly Northern Medoc terroir, many will know these wines are long-lived, stubborn after only a few years in bottle, they open up after 5 or 6 years to reveal a relaxed thoughtful glass of wine, very elegant for the price tag.
A sleeper of the vintage, this consistently over-achieving Medoc has a character unlike a low-level Pauillac. Black currants galore intermixed with some crushed rock, licorice, tobacco leaf and spice box are all present in this deep ruby/purple-colored, medium to full-bodied wine. The tannins are sweet and extra fleshy, and the wine ideal for drinking over the next decade.
