Saint Émilion Grand Cru wines are produced under stricter production restrictions than regular Saint Émilion wines, with the intention being to improve the quality and to distinguish the area's finer wines from the more 'everyday' wines. The Château Tour des Combes 2009 Saint Émilion Grand Cru is a beautiful wine comprised of 80% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Intense garnet red in color, this red blend opens with fresh aromas of berries, mint, and cocoa. On the palate, the wine has a full body with rich, fruity flavors, soft tannins, and a nice long finish.
