Château Tour de Ségur Red

Home > Our Wines > Our wines > Château Tour de Ségur Rouge

Made from a terroir of character, the wines of Chateau Tour de Segur are distinguished by their deep color  and the subtle bouquet, all in finesse and generosity.


2015 Château Tour de Ségur label

Wine style

Soft and Sensual

Grape blend

Merlot 65% / Cabernet Franc 25% / Cabernet Sauvignon 10%.

Weather

2015 was the third warmest year since 1900... Drought conditions, above-average monthly temperatures and sunshine (in the first half of the year), cool nights and hot weather in August accompanying véraison (colour change) were all ideal for the vines!

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Brilliant, lovely, crimson colour with orange highlights.

Nose

Expressive, elegant nose reminiscent of red fruit, especially cherry.

Mouth

Fresh and delicious on the palate. The lovely red fruit aromatics in the bouquet come through on the palate as well.  The oak is restrained and the tannin is altogether elegant. The aftertaste is also quite pleasant. 2015 Tour de Ségur partners excellently with cassoulet, veal dishes, or Irish stew.
