Chateau Tournfeuille is a hidden gem amongst its very famous neighbours, Petrus and Le Pin, whose wines sell for thousands. This blend of 70% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Franc shows concentrated boysenberry, black cherry, cedar, and tobacco notes on a sturdy frame with firm tannins. This is an insane value and can probably go for 15-20 years if cellared properly.

Country Of Origin: France

Wine has been in the blood of the Petit family since the eighteenth century but they did not buy this particular Château until 1998. Situated in the commune of Néac, what makes this property so special is the south-west facing clay/gravel slope on which it sits just across the Barbanne valley from its near neighbour Pétrus. These conditions are perfect for the ripening of Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Well-located on an hill top situation facing the greatest Pomerol estates, clay-and-gravely soils make Chateau Tournefeuille’s slope unique and historically part of Lalande de Pomerol best wines.

Country Of Origin: France
