One of the best values in the Margaux region! An intense ruby red color. The very expressive fruity nose reveals cocoa, blackcurrants and black plums notes softly smoked. The attack is elegant and presents a well-balanced structure with a beautiful dense and round mouth balanced. The palate ends on soft tannins. This Bordeaux red pairs well with red meats, poultry and game.
93 Points - James Suckling A chunky and powerful 2018 with lots of berry, chocolate and walnut character. Full body. Flavorful.
92 Points - Vinous The 2018 La Tour de Mons is powerful, rich and deep, with tons of fruit intensity and overall richness. Blood orange, spice, cedar and dark red cherry all run though this racy, boisterous Margaux. Extroverted and inviting, the 2018 will drink well pretty much upon release.
90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck The 2018 Château La Tour De Mons is another elegant, classy Margaux that's already showing nicely. Lots of red and black currants, cedar pencil, dried flowers, and earthy tobacco define the bouquet, and it's medium-bodied, with nicely integrated tannins, no hard edges, and an outstanding finish. It's going to evolve gracefully for 15-20 years.
90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2018 La Tour de Mons is deep garnet-purple colored, opening with cedar over red and black fruit, black cherries and dried herbs with a waft of mossy bark. The palate is full-bodied, firm and grainy with an oaky finish.
