Last 18 Tour St-Michel Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2010 MAGNUMS


Tour St-Michel 18 Magnums

Just 18 Magnums from the great 2010 vintage available at Pre Arrival Prices

 

Who'd like the last 18 Magnums of 2010 Chateauneuf-du-Pape from Domaine Tour Saint-Michel?

 

The wines are made by Mireille Fabre, one of a small number of female winemakers in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Her wines are more feminine than many and her top cuvee 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 will arrive soon so our Pre Arrival Price won't be available much longer.


Tour St-Michel Lion Magnum

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee La Tour du Lion MAGNUM 2010 ONLY 7 AVAILABLE
Normal Price $132.00

Pre Arrival Price $112.00

 

The Rhone Report: More traditional and mineral-laced, the 2010 La Tour du Lion is a blend of 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 5% Mourvedre that is aged mostly in tank, with 20% of the blend seeing 2-year-old barrels. Elegant and more approachable than the Feminessence, it delivers plenty of black fruit characteristics to go with notions of smoked earth, wet stone, and meaty qualities, with only a hint of the barrique aging showing. This is followed by a full-bodied, gorgeously fruited 2010 that has a fleshy, mouth filling texture, brilliant purity, and a seamless finish. It should be better in a handful of years, and have 10-12 years or more of overall longevity. 94 Points

 

Tour St Michel Feminessance Magnum

Chateauneuf-du-Pape Feminessance MAGNUM 2010 ONLY 11 AVAILABLE

Normal Price $170.00

Pre Arrival Price $144.00

 

The Rhone Report: Easily the most modern in the lineup, yet absolutely beautifully done, the 2010 Domaine Tour Saint-Michel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Feminessence is a blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Syrah that is aged half in new, and half in 1-year-old, French oak barrels. It offers up an intense array of black cherry liqueur, blackberry, white chocolate, vanilla, and spice box-like aromatics that give way to a full-bodied, seamless palate that has a decadent, almost voluptuous texture, pure fruit, and brilliant richness. I am certainly a fan, but it will not be for everyone given the modern slant. Nevertheless, I think the oak and modern profile here will mostly integrate with 4-5 years of bottle age, and it will have 12-15 years or more of total longevity. 94 Points
