Château Tour de Ségur Red

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.


label Château Tour de Ségur 2010

Wine style

Tender and Aromatic

Grape blend

Merlot 60% / Cabernet franc 30% / Cabernet sauvignon 10%.

Weather

Winter was harsh (many days with frost) and spring rather chilly. There was a great deal of sunshine in 2010 and a long period of drought from 21 June to late September, which was favourable for ripening.

Tasting Comment

Appareance

Deep garnet-red with a purplish-red rim.

Nose

Mainly planted with Merlot, Château Tour de Ségur receives the same care and attention as the grand vin, Château Barbe-Blanche. It has a ripe, fruity bouquet with a smooth flavour and vanilla nuances.

Mouth

The wine is round, silky and very attractive on the palate. The tannin is soft and the long aftertaste is complemented by understated oak. Enjoyable as of now, this Lussac-Saint-Émilion goes beautifully with poultry, pork, and lamb.

Consumption period

2013 - 2020
