|Region||France, Bordeaux, Margaux|
|Brand||Chateau La Tour de Bessan|
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.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 ChÃÂ¢teau 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.
Wine Spectator Subtle lilac and singed sandalwood aromas lead the way, backed by velvet-textured red and black currant preserve flavors. The perfumed finish picks up a light iron echo. Drink now through 2022. 7,570 cases made.
