The 2009 Chateau La Tour de Mons is yet another outstanding value from the extraordinary 2009 vintage. In fact, it was the Wine Spectator’s highest rated 2009 Margaux that sells for less than $30.
Chateau La Tour de Mons is classified as a cru bourgeois property located in the village of Soussans within the Margaux appellation. A blend of 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 55% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, and 6% Petit Verdot, the 2009 La Tour de Mons is a medium-bodied Margaux with a nice balance between ripe fruit, oak, and some nice structure.

This assertive red delivers bold flavors, with crisp texture, offering bright black cherry and pomegranate notes over firm tannins. Orange zest acidity carries this through the juicy finish. Drink now through 2020.–TM
Decanter 16+/20 Points
Dense colour, big concentrated blackcurrant fruit, robust yet lifted, very good northern Margaux. Drink 2014-20.
