Chateau Tour d'Auron Bordeaux Superieur 2012
The Color : medium to deep cherry red. The Nose : shows good intensity and a complex bouquet of truffles, violets and rich fruits. The Palate : medium to full bodied with tannins that give structure and frame the black cherry and blueberry fruits. Well balanced, elegant, complex, and with long length. The vineyard at Château Tour d'Auron lies on a plateau with excellent exposure just 3 miles from Pomerol. The 32 acre property is planted at a density of 2,850 vines per acre, and the key to the quality of the terroir lies in the clay soil, rich in iron oxides as well as other minerals and nutrients. The clay is particularly suited to Merlot, which is the majority planting at 75%, along with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Cabernet Franc.
