Château Tour des Termes
AOC Saint-Estephe – Bordeaux – France
The name TOUR DES TERMES comes from an old feudal style tower that still stands on a plot called Les Termes, which was part of an ancient Gallo-Roman site.
Château Tour des Termes has a family history that can be traced back several centuries, which is very unusual in Saint-Estèphe. Since 1678, successive generations have gradually made the property what it is today.
Jean Anney, his son Christophe and his granddaughter Aurélie currently uphold the family tradition. But most importantly, the château’s wine stands out in the Saint- Estèphe appellation for its finesse and elegance, due to several factors: a selection from our finest terroirs, atypical planting with a majority of Merlot, a vineyard that has reached full maturity, and environmentally friendly growing methods. (TERRA- VITIS and HVE3).
