This estate has been vastly improved since it was bought by the Richard family whose coffees are familiar in many French cafés. Richly aromatic and juicy, this wine is full, packed with fruit and acidity, and already delicious to drink. - ROGER VOSS


TERROIRS : The vineyards are situated in a natural amphitheatre around the Château and the vines themselves are planted in sandy soils resulting from the disintegration of the granite bedrock. These are poor, thin, acidic soils where we can still see projections of the underlying rock.

TASTING : The bouquet is dominated by notes of ripe fruit. In the mouth it is full and silky with soft, supple tannins.

WINE AND FOOD PAIRING : The Brouilly from Château des Tours marries well with a large variety of dishes : terrines, poultry and white meats, lamb with herbs, fish and risottos.
