Vinified within Château Capet Guillier, Château Tour de Capet enjoys its own unique terroir, lending the wine identity and character. The sandy-silt soil produces wines of great finesse, which draw character from the well-balanced structure and round-bodied nature of Merlot. Wine is vinified in concrete vats then aged in French oak barrels: 1/3 in new barrels, 1/3 in one-wine barrels, 1/3 in two-wine barrels for 12 months.
Purple in colour, the nose reveals aromas of crisp black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry, blueberry) and spice (cinnamon, vanilla, cloves). The palate is supple and silky, with black fruit and spices, medium acidity and fine, silky tannins. The finish is pleasant.
