True to its origins, Château Tour Prignac Grande Réserve owes its unique qualities to the magic of its terroir, to the care and attention paid in the vines over several generations. This remarkable wine is, in part, made from grapes harvested from a plot known as “La Colline” (The Hill), with its fine clay-limestone soils that provide the perfect conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. On the nose, complex oaky notes complete an elegant bouquet of dark fruits and macerated cherries.
This balance is replicated on the palette, with smooth tannins carrying attractive aromas of Havana cigars and chocolate. Remarkably persistent, the finish is a tell-tale sign of the wine’s quality, rewarding a patient approach to winemaking.
With its sumptuous ruby colour, Château Tour Prignac is all about the elegance of its structure and the precision of its aromas. While this balanced, fruit-forward wine is made from the property’s historic plots, its reputation is constructed on the back of rigorous selection and its slightly higher than average proportion of Merlot. Part of the Crus Bourgeois classification, Château Tour Prignac is remarkable for its aging potential, up to 10 years according to the vintage.
On the nose, the wine offers a harmonious balance of ripe red fruit and subtle spice. This is confirmed on the palette, with a smooth attack backed up by delightfully silky tannins. The overall impression is one of elegance, with an attractive finish, full of promise.
Combining freshness and balance, delicacy and elegance, Les Hauts de Tour Prignac is an authentic expression of its terroir. The blend is made up of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, revealing a remarkably complex bouquet of aromas.
Les Hauts de Tour Prignac is inspired by the same culture of excellence as the property’s other wines, from plot by plot selection to the art of the blend. A brick red colour is typical of the region, with notes of liquorice and chocolate backed up by a delightful mouthfeel. Blessed with rich aromas, the finish is testament to the quality of this second wine.
