Crafting Exceptional Wines with Four Generations of Expertise
The wine displays a deep garnet hue with amber hints, signifying its maturity. It unveils a complex bouquet of cassis, cigar box, and subtle floral and spice accents.

This imparts a timeless, regional essence, harmoniously supported by succulent, ripe currant fruit on a lingering finish.

STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
La Tour Sieujean: a rare, family-owned gem among Pauillac's esteemed estates. It is nestled in the heart of Medoc, carries a four-generation legacy under Michèle and André Lopez. After a stint with the Pauillac cooperative, they rebranded in 2002. The climate yields mature grapes for exceptional 'vins de garde.' With 6 hectares, predominantly 70% cabernet sauvignon and 30% merlot, their terroir and techniques shine. Their wines age for 12-14 months in a mix of new and one-year-old wine barrels, resulting in truly exceptional vintages.
