Château Tour Du Pas St Georges
Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc
St Georges St Emilion AOC, Bordeaux, France
This is a beautiful, classic tasting red Bordeaux. It is Merlot dominated with complex aromas and ripe tannins, which are soft and integrated. It exudes flavours of summer fruits, with a hint of cocoa and vanilla.
Pascal Delbeck, the former winemaker at Château Bélair, 1er Cru Classé Saint-Émilion, now working with his son and daughter, has been tending to 14 hectares for the past 20 years. Saint Georges has long been recognised as the most prestigious satellite Saint-Émilion. This site benefits from south-facing slopes, clay-limestones and sand soils from Perigord.

Chateau Tour de Pas St. Georges is considered by many to be the flagship wine of this appellation. St. Georges is the most prestigeous satellite of St. Emilion, and is a closely guarded secret among a few passionate winemakers. Pascal Delbeck took over the estate from Madame Dubois -Challon, and they were both former owners of Chateau Bel Air, 1er Grand Cru Classé St. Emilion.
The wealth of experience and knowledge which Mr. Delbeck brings with him is poured into the wine, making the very best out of the excellent terroir. The domaine is run according to biodynamic principles, and harvesting is by hand.
"Fresh and elegant nose, some creamy oak. Complex palate, spice and red fruit characters, a very enjoyable satellite Saint-Emilion. Great value for money."
