    Cuvée presentation

    Located within the Vacqueyras appellation, in Sarrians to be precise, the Domaine des Tours is managed by an international star who needs no introduction: Emmanuel Reynaud. Here this winemaker offers us a blend of Merlot and Syrah classified under the appellation of Vin de Pays du Vaucluse. Unsurprisingly, this wine has had a very careful, even risky cultivation. In fact, the grapes are only harvested when they are optimally, very optimally ripe. In the cellar, particular care is taken with the vinification in order to let the grapes express the quintessential qualities of their original terroir. A terroir which is made up of limestone, sandstone, marl and rounded pebbles, as well as a Mediterranean climate.
    This wine can be appreciated just as much when it is young as after a short cellaring period, and has a seductive purple colour with glints of violet. It unleashes aromas of very red fruits such as raspberry. Nuances which we also find on the palate, and which are supplemented with complex hints of sweet spices. Food-lovers are advised to open the wine a short while before it is served and to pair it with grilled meat, an aubergine gratin, or a savoury tart with figs, hazelnuts, cured ham and parmesan.

    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.
