The Château La Tour de Mons is a single block vineyard, surrounded by a wall and located in the northern part of the Margaux appellation near the banks of the Garonne, as are all the very best Médoc Crus. The history of La Tour de Mons begins in 1098 with the creation of the seigneury of Soussans by William IX the Troubadour, Duke of Aquitaine, Count of Poitiers and Gascony. La Tour de Mons’ fortified manor house was certainly built in the 13th century by the lords of Blanquefort. Since the beginning many generations have been involved on these lands. Amongst its illustrious owners was Pierre de Mons, who through his marriage acquired the property in 1623, gave it his name and devoted his life to the development of the vineyard. Pierre de Mons also bought the noble houses of Labégorce and Bessan and inherited the seigneury of Marsac thus becoming the first holder of the seven seigneuries which made up the domain of Soussans at its origin. The Château La Tour de Mons belonged to his lieage until the end of the 20th century. History is repeated almost 400 years later when in 2020 the Château La Tour de Mons is sold by CA Grands Crus to the Perrodo family, who already own two close neigbors : Château Labégorce Margaux and Château Marquis d’Alesme, an 1855 Grand Gru Classé. The Perrodo’s love at first sight for the Margaux region is in line with those who have loved this land over the centuries; they also have a vision, which reveals the astounding potential of a territory to raise it to a high level of quality.
