CHÂTEAU TOUR DES TERMES 2011
The castle owes its name to an old tower located on a parcel called the Terms. The origin of this tower dates back to the Gallo-Roman era where remains of moorings with boats dating from this time favors the hypothesis of the presence of an old lighthouse at this location thus marking the entrance of a front -port of the ancient Gallo-Roman city BRION located a few kilometers away.
The names of the Terms would mean the end of the lands. But the Château Tour des Termes is first and foremost the story of an old Medocan family which gradually, over the generations, has constituted this domain.
In 1678, old parchments mention a certain ANNEY, plowman on the commune of POTENSAC in Médoc. In 1876, his great-grandson became a winemaker in Saint-Estèphe and from generation to generation the estate grew until 1938 when Pierre ANNEY acquired the Château.
Merlot 60%, Cabernet Sauvignon 30%, Petit Verdot 5%, Cabernet Franc 5%.
Tasting notes :
The tannins are so fine that they take you into a delicate wine. The sensitivity of this wine is released by an elegant and silky frame, on a range of extreme finesse. From black to spicy fruit, this wine is sumptuous.
