The 2022 La Tour de Mons was picked 8-20 September, and matures in 20% new oak. It has a pretty bouquet with vivacious red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit. Fine delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy dark berry fruit, touches of tobacco, a little rusticity toward the finish but you can stand back and admire the freshness. There is just a bit of abruptness on the finish at the moment. 14.5% alcohol.
Anticipated maturity: 2028-2045
