Notes

Domaine des Tours is owned by the Southern Rhone's most hallowed wine, Chateau Rayas. Jacques Reynaud passed away quite suddenly in 1997 with operating and management turned over to Emmanuel, his nephew, who was already running the Domaine des Tours, where he created the cellar and developed marketing as from 1989. Today, Emmanuel Reynaud manages three domains with the help of his employees.

The last vintage tasted was the 2009 and it's notes are as follows:
‘The sensational 2009 Vacqueyras should age as well as its 2004 counterpart, but it is a headier cuvee with relatively high alcohol (probably 15+%). It exhibits abundant notes of kirsch liqueur, licorice and raspberry in addition to a full-bodied style filled with fruit and character. Aged completely in tanks, it comes across like a family member of the great Chateau Rayas.’ – Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate 93+/100
