    Winemaker's Notes:

    This terroir lies close to Le Castellet village on the top of the hillside (170 meters altitude). The rather homogeneous clay and chalk terroir lies on 100-million year old Santonien.

    There the Mourvèdre grape expresses itself fully. It gives tannin, fruity and powerful wines. It contains 70-80% of the Mourvèdre grape depending on the year. La Tourtine site is often swept by the Mistral wind and is particularly well exposed to the sun.

    Thus it produces a great wine that ages well even after 10 or 15 years and keeps its red berry and spice aromas.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very beefy and rich, with good cut to the red plum, dried berry and kirschlike flavors. The intense and concentrated finish is dominated by vibrant mineral and spice notes. A good candidate for the cellar. Best from 2010 through 2016. 231 cases imported.
