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.
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.
