Château Tour Négrier

MÉDOC AOC – BORDEAUX – FRANCE

This vineyear has been the property of the Faugerolle family since 1965. The Castle’s name comes from the Lieu-Dit “Tour” as well as from the name Mr. Négrier, who was the former owner of the Castle.

The very calcareous terroir is particular and requires an adapted grape variety, the Merlot. It produces rather feminine, fruity, and fine wines.
