With a history of several centuries, Château La Tour de Mons
is a property in one piece, real Clos, established in the
northern part of the Margaux Appellation, on the banks of the Garonne, like the greatest Médoc Crus. Several generations
have succeeded on these lands since the origin of the castle in the 13th century century. Of its many owners, we will remember Pierre de Mons, who took possession of the estate in 1623 and gave it his name. The estate will belong to his descendants until the end of the 20th century. Since 2019, it belongs to the Perrodo family,also owner of the Grand Cru Classé Château Marquis from Alesme Becker to Margaux. In 2020, it is recognized Cru Bourgeois Superior in the new classification of Crus Bourgeois.
