Wine Enthusiast: Intense ruby colour. Aromas of blackcurrant, cigar box and spice fragrance. Medium to full-bodied wine, young grippy tannins form a masculine structure, cleansing acidity, ripe berry fruit flavors.
Château Tour Saint-Bonnet

Ownership of the same family throughout the entirety of the 20th century is an example of stability very few properties can boast. Chateau Tour Saint-Bonnet was fortunate to survive the turmoil of the 1900’s in the custody of the Lafon family, its proprietor since 1903. 
It is the largest cru of the village Saint-Cristoly in Low Medoc (i.e. the northern section of the peninsula). Vines cover gravelly slopes – the best terroir a wine and a vigneron can wish for.  

The approach to winemaking at Chateau Tour Saint-Bonnet has its peculiarities: the estate’s Manager does not particularly welcome new oak because of the scent of vanilla it adds to wine. Therefore, wine is matured in huge wooden tanks, but not the wide-spread classical barrels.

Despite this unusual feature, Chateau Tour Saint-Bonnet is described as classics of Medoc: 4-5 years of maturing smooth out the tannins; crisp flavour, quite austere at young age, gains generous aroma of blackcurrant.
