Le Clos des Épeneaux
The famous Clos, a magnificent parcel of five hectares, is one of the 10 largest premier or grand cru monopoles of the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits.
Clos des Epeneaux is situated in the heart of the Grands and Petits Epenots. The vines varies between 30 and 80 years, with a density of plantations of 12,000 vines/hectare.
It's separated in 4 units, which are separately vinified.
4 major criteria are distinguished :
Very fruity, exotic fruit (pineapple), acacia blossom, lychee, apricot and peach. Round, full, good length in mouth with a final of vanilla.
"Intense and slightly sappy apricots with dried herbs and subtly spicy notes. The palate has nice, crisp and punchy, melon flavor and quite tight texture. Drink or hold." James Suckling, 92/100
Dark, garnet red in colour. The nose is full of fresh roses, cherry and cedar wood, alongside an abiding impression of freshness. Just a touch of vanilla lurks in the background.
Silky structure in the mouth, centered around the fine, enveloping tannins. There's a wealth of blackberry and cherry fruit. Great length.Chateau Chasse-Spleen
The flagship from Two Paddocks – an organically grown barrel selection from the estate properties.
Aromatically this wine exhibits dried herb with a dark spice and bramble fruit spectrum, leading to an elegant textural mouthfeel showing minerality, great balance and drive.Two Paddocks
Salt, sage, blood orange, cherries, pomelo, dry spices, and hibiscus. The background aromas are all umami; soy, and mushroom. On the palate, loads of resinous red fruits, and spice with savory notes bringing up the rear. It’s bright and sinewy, with plenty of mid palate density and chew. Lingering notes aren’t sweet; they are rather savory and loaded with earth and minerality. This bottling shows the weight of the vintage while maintaining a beautiful poise.

This Pinot Noir is a blend of parcels from our own vineyard at Pipers River, Coal River Valley and our growers at Swansea and Ouse. Each of these sites is unique with distinctive individual terroirs, building complexity into the final wine blend.
Each of the different parcels of fruit from across the vineyard sites were picked on their merit. Fermentation started after 2-3 days with plunging of the cap to extract colour and tannin from the skins. The wine was pressed at completion of fermentation and settled before being placed into French oak barriques, where malolactic fermentation took place, prior to filtration and bottling.
Evidence of a warmer vintage is immediately apparent; with the generous red berry fruit aromas, hints of fresh cut plums and fine oak spice. The entry onto the palate of soft red fruits with ripe tannin structure support the sense of a warm vintage. Savoury notes of dried meats and provencal herbs add to the complexity after opening, and will become more integrated with bottle age. The 2016 will reward cool cellaring for 3 – 5 years.
Old Vines is composed of a variety of old sites from California that are either too small to be made into a vineyard designate wine or are “new” to the Turley family (and way of farming). Vines are anywhere from 41 to 129 years old, and a true representation of California old vine Zinfandel, hailing from vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lodi, Contra Costa, Amador and Paso Robles.Turley Wine Cellars
