Description

Think of Beaujolais ... then think again, and consider the cru Beaujolais, the product of 10 villages whose wines are considered so exceptional that they carry the village name. The cru villages are Brouilly, Chénas, Chiroubles, Côte de Brouilly, Fleurie, Juliénas, Morgon, Moulin-a-Vent, Saint-Amour, and the most recent designee, Régnié. Château des Tours has 50 hectares of vines all planted facing south within the appellation of Brouilly. There is a high proportion of old vines and the wine is vinified in the traditional Beaujolais manner Château des Tours has been making wine from the same vineyards since 1153 AD. The Brouilly of Château des Tours has a delightful intense purple-mauve colour with a bouquet of violets and raspberries. On the palate it is lively, rich, balanced, and tender with an immediate appeal. TASTING : Beautiful intense colour under which you will discover a full fleshy wine, carrying expressive aromas of black fruit, flowers and spices. WINE AND FOOD PAIRING : Red meat, in sauces.
