Wine Enthusiast 88 Points 

This wine is all about fruit, with ripe tannins to complement the blackberry flavors and good acidity. It is a wine with potential, fruity and structured at the same time. Drink from 2022.

A traditional blend of mostly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the magnificent 2016 vintage, the 2016 Château Tour de Gilet truly shines. Bolder and richer in flavor than one might expect bouquet of blackcurrant, cranberry and forest floor. In the mouth a delightful mélange of berry flavors (blackberry and currant), dark cherry and damsel plum make a delightful appearance on a wave of silky tannins. Nicely balanced and endowed with traditional Bordeaux character and style.

As the name implies, Bordeaux Sperieur is a slightly better version of standard Bordeaux and gives you these extra benefits;

Use of older vines, Densely planted vineyards, Required ripeness of fruit and natural sugar levels upon harvest, Lower harvest yields, Minimum 10.5% ABV, 12-month minimum barrel aging requirement.

Not bad for a couple of extra bucks!
