Château Tour Bayard 2018 (91 JD)
“A blend of 80% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc, all from the Montagne region of Saint-Emilion, the 2018 Château Tour Bayard has a classy nose of redcurrants, ripe cherries, green tobacco, spring flowers, and sandalwood. This carries to a ripe, pure, elegant, and medium to full-bodied 2018 with ripe tannins, a big mid-palate, and lots of character.”
Château Recougne - Boutisse - Tour Bayard
Château Tour Bayard is a recent addition to the Milhade portfolio, coming into the family through marriage. This 25 acre property in the St.-Émilion Satellite Montagne-St.-Émilion has been run by the Richard family since 1956, and is now regarded as one of the top estates in the appellation.
These 3 estates are run by an extended family and represent in both the past and future an extraordinarily exciting story: estates on the right bank of Bordeaux making utterly authentic, soulful wines, led by a dynamic young generation eager to bring its own perspective and energy.
