We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
The origin of this property can be found in a 13th century tower situated in Soussans, where you can still see the ruins of this old fortified site that was designed to protect the Lord Jehan Colomb. This edifice remained in the Colomb family until 1390 and then several illustrious local families followed suit; the Durforts and Garros families, then the Lords of Mons in 1488. Their last beneficiary, Thérèse, married the son of the great writer Montesquieu in 1740. The title of Lord of Soussans was kept by their descendants until the French Revolution.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chateau La Tour de Bessan has a straightforward, blackberry and bilberry scented bouquet that takes time to settle in the glass, but it does coalesce nicely and the oak is neatly integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, plenty of blackberry and boysenberry notes infused with cedar and graphite, leading to a precise finish. 90-92
James SucklingAn impressive wine that has a strong core of very succulent blackberry and raspberry fruits amid a smooth, velvety but strongly structured palate. Real clarity to the finish. Very pure. Try from 2021.
