77 bottles of Les Tourelles - the Trophy Winning "Best Old World White Wine" at the Japan Wine Challenge 2012

Disenbourg Tourelles Bottle The history of Château Isenbourg is nothing if not dramatic. It is based in the commune of Rouffach, 8km south of Colmar in the Haut-Rhin district of Alsace. The name 'Isenbourg' has more than one possible origin: either from Eisenburg - 'the iron castle', or from Isisburg - 'the castle of Isis', the Egyptian goddess also venerated by the Romans. The area has indeed been occupied since Roman times, and some remnants suggest dedication to vine growing since then.

After a tumultuous journey through the centuries the chateau and its holdings were sold in 1974. Management of the vines and winemaking is handled by the team at Dopff and Irion.
The domaine is very special as it is the only Chateau with a Clos (walled vineyard) in Alsace. The Clos Château Isenbourg is a unique place for the vines thanks to a specific configuration of the vineyards. It consists of a microclimate which is reinforced by the surrounding walls which exercise a role in heat control and favour grape maturation. The hills on which the vineyard is located are renowned for low rainfall and exceptional levels of sunshine. 
The domaine produces an unusual white wine that they call "Les Tourelles". It is a field blend of Riesling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Gewurztraminer. Only 4,000 bottles are produced annually.
Japanese Wine Challenge The 2010 (a great vintage in Alsace) is a multi-award winner across the globe. Its biggest award was the Trophy and Gold Medal for the Best Old World White Wine at the Japan Wine Challenge 2012. The Japan Wine Challenge has been running since 1997 and is judged by some of the world's best known professionals including Masters of Wine and wine journalists. It is considered one of the top five wine competitions in the world. The wine was up against wines from across the globe.
We have the last 77 bottles of this wine direct from the chateau. It is extremely well priced and if you are looking for something different to drink it is a not-to-be-missed proposition.
Normally $43.95 a Bottle
Pre Arrival $37.50
Case of 12 Bottles $421.90 (=$35.16 a Bottle)
