Not your thin, lightweight Merlot but rich, vibrant and very more-ish. Typical full-on red berry fruit on the nose (typical of Merlot) which leads through to a rich, vibrant and aromatic palate that swirls with lashings of ripe fruit underpinned by good structure.
COLOUR: from garnet red to mahogany according to the age.
NOSE: powerful, balancing between black fruits and stewed fruits subtly brought by cocoa aromas.
MOUTH: sumptuous balance between the solar strength of the wine and the fineness of its tannins. It has a great persistency with sweetness which develops greedily.
Chateau des Tours is a beautiful estate dating back to the 14th century with the Chateau surrounded by the vineyards. Their Brouilly is a wine that is all about elegance, balance and finesse. The nose is full of dark fruit, lightened by floral notes. In the mouth this is beautifully poised with silky tannins and a great length.Chateau des Tours
Family-owned since 1898, the vineyard was gradually expanded and became the principal activity of the Couderc family in 1985. High up on the plateau de Pujols, a rocky outcrop overlooking the Dordogne Valley and facing the slopes of Saint Emilion, are the constructions of five successive generations. The entire estate has been modernised and the vineyard is run with passion and painstaking care by Mr Couderc senior, aided, since 1997, by his son Julien, a qualified viticulturist and oenologist.
