2009 CHATEAU DES TOURS Vacqueyras 75cl (Rhone Valley, France)
Style - Spicy
Grapes - Grenache
Tasting - Luscious, spicy and mouth filling yet with an ineffable grace and charm that this estate specialises in. Thyme, red cherry, redcurrant and rosehip tea flavours with a satin soft, and vaguely gamey finish.
FYI: Chateau des Tours is owned and managed by renowned, and fiercely expensive, Chateauneuf du Pape producer Chateau Rayas.
