Saint-Estèphe 2016 Chateau Tour de Marbuzet
Chateau Tour de Marbuzet's Saint-Estèphe is a fine red wine produced in the Médoc region of northwest Bordeaux, France. The grapes used for its production are mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, grown in vineyards located on the Estate's gravel and gravel-sand soils.
The grapes are grown using sustainable farming techniques that prioritize the preservation of biodiversity and the reduction of environmental impact. In particular, the Tour de Marbuzet Estate is committed to integrated vine disease management, using only natural and organic products for plant defense.
Chateau Tour de Marbuzet's production philosophy is based on a balance between tradition and innovation, with the aim of preserving the identity and quality of the terroir. After harvesting, the grapes are gently crushed and undergo fermentation in stainless steel, with a skin maceration of about three weeks. The resulting wine is then aged in French oak barrels for about 18 months before being bottled.
The result is a red wine of great elegance and complexity, characterized by a deep ruby red color and an aromatic bouquet of red fruits, spices and toasted notes. The palate is distinguished by its tannic structure, balanced by a pleasant softness and a long aromatic persistence.
