Reviews and Ratings

Ch√Ęteau Tour d'Horable is a blend of 90% Merlot mainly present for its fruity taste, and 10% Cabernet Franc to reinforce the structure & balance of the wine.

Under a deep, crimson and purple colour, Ch√Ęteau Tour d'Horable is an aromatic wine based upon a fantastic balance enhanced by maturation in oak barrels.

A nice balance of red and black fruits, with light toast from the small amount of new oak used.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
