Tour St-Michel 2012 Header
"If you haven't caught on to Tour St.-Michel, it's about time, as this is a major up-and-coming estate." "There are three cuvees, all of them brilliant in both 2009 and 2010.' Robert Parker
  
That was a few years ago and Tour St-Michel has gone from strength to strength.
Our 2012's are about to leave France so timing could not be better to pick up some of these high-quality, great value Chateauneuf-du-Papes.
Tour St Michel Deux Soeurs We present the range of three cuvees: des Deux Soeurs, La Cuvee du Lion and Feminessance.
For those of you who have not purchased this domaine before here is a little background. Domaine Tour Saint Michel was founded in 1930 by Michel Fabre. Since 2002 the domaine has been run by Mireille Fabre, the third generation of the family. Mireille is also in charge of winemaking, a rather unusual situation in Chateauneuf-du-Pape where there are very few female winemakers.

The winery, marked by the tower that gives the domaine its name, and its vineyards are in the south of the appellation. They have 35ha of red vines and 1.5 ha of white, primarily in Les Gallimardes and Les Serres where the soil is clay with gravel subsoil, and is covered with large stones. The red vineyards are planted 80% with Grenache and the average vine age is over 40 years. 

Apart from the fact the wines are made by a female winemaker what attracted me to this domaine was the restrained style of the wines - they are not big over the top, high alcohol productions - and the very reasonable prices, even for the prestige cuvee. The domaine also fill our requirement of being a relative unknown, up and coming producer.
