This premium red blend consists Merlot and Cabernet Franc, two of the most prominant red varietals grown in the Saint Emilion appellation. Aromas of wild strawberries and raspberries complement the rich dark fruit flavors on the nicely balanced, elegantly structured palate. Château La Tour du Pin Figeac has earned the prestigious 'Grand Cru Classé' distinction for this wine, meaning it was made under stricter production restrictions to promote a higher quality wine. [+]
