We are very pleased to be able to offer Magnums of Tour Saint-Michel's top two Chateauneuf-du-Papes from the terrific 2010 vintage.
The wines are made by Mireille Fabre, one of a small number of female winemakers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Her style is more feminine than many and her top wine Feminessance brilliantly captures her stylish, expressive winemaking. La Tour du Lion is full of character with a hint of the exotic and pure, layered fruit. It is a knockout.
You might not know the domaine but Robert Parker says "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." They also produced Decanter Magazine's second best Chateauneuf-du-Pape of the 2009 vintage from a field of 235 wines!
These Magnums are limited so please act quickly if you would like to secure a few.
Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee La Tour du Lion MAGNUM 2010
Normal Price $132.00
Pre Arrival Price $112.00
Jancis Robinson: Lustrous dark crimson. Very ripe but with some sweetness and real tension. Very full and plush and exotic. But not heavy nor too sweet and the alcohol is wonderfully well carried. In fact the wine is almost cool on the finish. This is lovely; the tannins are well hidden but definitely present. Mainly ripe fruit but lots of spice and an attractive edge of tarriness. 18.5

Pre Arrival Price $144.00
Robert Parker: The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Feminessance is extraordinary. Opaque ruby/purple, with a beautiful nose of lavender and blackberry liqueur as well as hints of white chocolate, espresso roast, raspberries and kirsch, its multi-layered mouthfeel, stunning purity and long finish suggest a wine that has 15 or more years in it. 92-95
