    Cuvée presentation

    It is undeniable that the Domaine des Tours of Rhône has now entered the legend of the great, fruity, complex, delicious, full-bodied wines of the South. Very great wines which are most notably embodied in this Merlot classified under the IGP Pays du Vaucluse appellation. Although the wine’s production methods are confidential, we do know that it is the result of a risky cultivation since the winemaker Emmanuel Reynaud only selects extremely ripe grapes. In the cellar, the idea is to let the grapes express the quintessential qualities of the terroir from which they originate. A terroir which is characterised by a Mediterranean climate and soils of marl, sandstone, rounded pebbles and limestone.
    Please note that this wine can be appreciated when it is young but several years of aging are highly recommended. You will then be able to appreciate its lovely ruby-red colour tinted with glints of garnet as well as its blend of aromas which are fruity with a beautifully spicy touch. Full-bodied and structured by fine-grained tannins, this wine can be readily paired with tender meat such as a lamb confit which has been cooked for many hours, an aubergine puree or stuffed mushrooms.

    Information about domain Château des Tours

    Located in Vacqueyras, Château des Tours is the property of the celebrated Emmanuel Reynaud of Château Rayas and Château Fonsalette fame. This domaine spans 40 hectares and produces a Vacqueyras rouge (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah), a Côtes-du-Rhône rouge (65% Grenache, 15% Cinsault and 20% Syrah) and a Côte-du-Rhône blanc (100% Grenache) under the name Château des Tours. It also produces, under the same name, a Vin de Pays de Vaucluse rouge (Grenache, Counoise, Syrah, Cinsault, Merlot and other varieties) and a Vin de Pays de Vaucluse blanc (100% Clairette). Finally, under the ‘Parisy' label it produces a Vin de Table rosé from a blend of Grenache and Cinsault. Great care is taken in the cultivation here although the domaine isn't scared to take a risk during harvest time. In fact, the grapes are picked when they are as ripe as possible. This domaine produces high quality wines that sho depth, fruit and exceptional balance. Their complexity and ageing potential make them highly sought-after. It4s worth noting also that the domaine only sells the simple Vin de Pays Vacqueyras after a few years ageing in their cave.
