BORDEAUX COTES DE BOURG BY CHATEAU TOUR NEUVE 2019
Bordeaux Cotes De Bourg 2019 is a quality driven Bordeaux—produced in the deep family tradition—at an amazing price of $18? What a find! If we know anything at WineOnline, it’s that there are always treasures to be found in “forgotten” places.
A family owned estate for six generations, Chateau Tour Neuve in Cotes de Bourg is a small estate that was purchased by the Faure family in the 70s. Now run by Delphine Faure who joined the family business 30 years ago after finishing her studies in oenology. Not only did Delphine become the first woman winemaker of the appellation, but she has since elevated the quality of her family’s Chateaux to a very impressive and Internationally-recognized level.
This vineyard benefits from a remarkable terroir on clay-limestone soil in the tiny appellation of Cotes de Bourg on the right bank, just across the river from Margaux. The Faures are producing the kind of place-expressive, value-driven Bordeaux that transports you to a time when quality was more important that quantity. Don’t take our word for it, based on the outstanding 3 gold medals + 92 points for their Cotes de Bourg, the critics agree.
