Château des Tours

Côtes du Rhône Red Rhone Blend 2015

My 2015 allocation has finally arrived -- Musky, dusty bright strawberry, white pepper, mint, sage, cinnamon, clove and hints of undergrowth--it could only be a Chateau Des Tours Côtes du Rhône Réserve.  On the palate, the 2015 takes the warmth of the vintage and perfectly asserts it’s juicy and vibrant persona, contrasting tart raspberry with saturating sweet spices and a refreshing wave of acid that sizzles upon the senese.  The finish is long, still focused on fruit but with notes of rhubarb and cheek-puckering tension. Wow.  — 2 days ago

I can’t find this, let alone Fonsallette, anywhere anymore. These estates need an importer who actually cares about getting wine into the glasses of people who love wine.

Sorry Tom, but I know your pain. I had to ask a trusted retailer to find these for me.

Elzeard Cotes Du Rhone Red Rhone Blend

Wonderful raspberry fruit leather nose.

Medium to heavier in body, alpine berry blend, hints of saline, sweet beet, tangy acidity.

Highly enjoyable, even with just a touch of heat on the nose, yet wow! This is such a great Rhône - I need more.

Very interesting. Opens pretty earthy but after airing blooms into multi layered vey nice. Mark at cellar rat recommended as replacement for a Rhône wine they were out of. — 12 hours ago

Cellared for 1.5 yrs. What a great value wine. Had it with an olive caper shallot chicken dish with anchovy radishes. Tomato leaf, green stemmed vegetal nose with a hint of mesquite or bbq sauce. Palette of cranberries, cherry and kids aquafresh. I think some of that minty bbq stuff comes from a bit of age. — 9 days ago

Reading Cork Dork. So far, it’s captivating.

Rich, dense, perfume of leather, pumpkins, and cinnamon.

Sweet licorice and blackberry compote right at the forefront. Followed by a juicy berry mid palate and a kick of garam masala and red pepper flake spice right as you’re setting the glass down.

A medium to high acidity, a bit much for this composite of flavor profile, but it still works — probably needs a bit of age. Pretty solid overall.

Côtes du Rhône White Rhone Blend

For $13.00 🤷🏼‍♂️, More than half Viognier, with the balance rounded out by Roussanne, Bourboulenc and just 2% Grenache Blanc, t
Definitely a case buy for the summer,
Seriously don’t know what white this is, says Blanc on K&L where I bought it, but doesn’t show up on delectable..
Way too many Guigal listed

Zuriah’s medium red. Reminds me of France with Milena and Myles and Zuriah so I’m not objective. Seems like a very universal red wine. Zuriah says it’s smoky but not too much. I don’t taste it but I do smell it when she mentions it.
Bold but not bitter. I liked it a lot at first but I feel like all red wine’s unpleasant flavors build more than white wines
