Attractive floral notes intermixed with some blueberry, raspberry and loamy soil notes are followed by an elegant medium-bodied wine with sweet fruit, attractive texture and up-front drinkability. This wine should be consumed over the next decade. ||La Tour de Mons has turned out an attractive blend of 56% Merlot, 38% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot in 2010. This property has always had better terroir than the wines evidence, but things are rebounding impressively. A member of the Alliance des Cru Bourgeois du Medoc. Wine Advocate.February, 2013

Love the quality of the polished and velvety tannins. Full, but not full blown. Balanced and attractive. jamessuckling.com

Exuberant, with lots of violet, anise and raspberry notes that show good cut and drive. The finish is toasty, but this should soak that up. Solid. James Molesworth, winespectator.com

Mid crimson. Very rich and aromatic. Exciting. Well balanced. Very dry on the end but lovely up to that point. Shame because it was all looking so lovely. Maybe it will settle down? jancisrobinson.com

Deep Cabernet fruit, lots of energy and good earthy depth, will turn out well. Drink 2014-20. Steven Spurrier, decanter.com

This is a simple basic Margaux that is balanced but unexciting. The flavours are subdued and straight-forward while the tannins are rustic. Moderately short finish. Enjoy it young. asianpalate.com
