THE WINE CELLAR INSIDER: "Flowers, wet earth, black cherries, and licorice show in the nose. On the palate, the wine is round, fresh, juicy, and fruity. The vibrant finish leaves you with black cherries, cocoa, spearmint, and licorice on the back end. The wine blends 57% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc. 14.5% ABV, 3.6 pH. Drink from 2025-2042."
JEB DUNNUCK: "The 2022 Château La Tour De Mons has lots of classy cassis and violet notes, as well as nicely integrated background oak. Medium-bodied on the palate, I love its balance, it has silky tannins, and it’s just about seamless. The blend is 57% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, pulled from 80% of the total production and aging in 20% new oak."
LISA PERROTTI-BROWN: "The 2022 La Tour de Mons is a blend of 57% Merlot, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc, and 3% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, it starts off a little closed and sluggish, soon unfurling to offer scents of baked plums, blackberry compote, and chocolate-covered cherries, with hints of charcoal and bay leaves. The full-bodied palate is chock full of juicy black fruits, supported by firm, grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with an herbal lift."
DECANTER: "Sleek and direct, linear and focussed, a good crisp bite to the fruit with searing, vibrant strawberry and red cherry fruit and a mineral chakiness that has a powdery, grippy texture. I like the precision and detail, feels well worked, not trying too hard still with intensity and drive. Approachable and charming, fleshy and ripe, but friendly with just a touch of heat on the finish. HVE certified."
