Château-Tournefeuille Chateau Tournefeuille 2014
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Tournefeuille has a very commendable bouquet with attractive dark cherry and red plum scents, nicely integrated oak and real presence. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. This feels supple and quite elegant, the acidity very well judged and the new oak lending a judicious creamy veneer on the detailed, terroir-driven finish. Give this a couple of years in bottle and you will have a fine Lalande de Pomerol.
Wine EnthusiastA firm and tannic wine that will become fine, structured and rich. Blackberry fruits come from the 70% Merlot in the blend, which is perfumed with Cabernet Franc. It is a ripe wine, juicy with acidity and finishing with a solid, concentrated aftertaste. Drink from 2019.
Wine SpectatorFocused, with a light graphite edge carrying the core of black cherry and blackberry fruit along. Slightly rustic through the finish, with a brambly edge poking through. Drink now through 2020. 5,000 cases made.
