Château des Tourelles Costières-de-Nîmes Cour des Glycines 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

From a variable vintage comes this shining light. 90-92 points from Mr Parker but a lovely wine that is drinking beautifully now and will continue to do so for another 3-5 years.

Wine was one of the biggest productions and source of enrichment in the roman empire. This trade was the most important one, as the italy could not assume its own consuption. The culture of the vines itself was different : different sorts of pergolas, vines growing on trees and another philosophy of the plant considering as it was more than a vegetal. Sometimes vines were married with trees to take their strength. Many sorts of wines existed in roman antiquity, from ones from a single place, family of wines with local interpretations or aromatised recipes. Two things let the use of drinking wine growing : creation of a social hierarchy in Rome and use of wine as a medicine. As important and rich people tryed to be unique and receive there hosts with luxury, some famous people have elaborated a taste hierarchy between the wines. As many authors described the use of wine in medicine and prescribe different wines for each disease, Pline tell one of is friends to drink a glass af mulsum every morning to keep youth. Read less

Pauillac is probably the most famous village in Bordeaux, France. Located between St. Julien and St. Estephe, it has more of the top ranked chateau than the other four appellations of the Haut Medoc. Because of the gravely soils and great drainage, Pauillac has the ideal conditions to grow great Cabernet Sauvignon. The wines from this village are some of the longest-lived in Bordeaux. The harmony and variety of the grapes of Pichon Longueville Comtesse de Lalande is unique in the Pauillac appellation. It is without doubt the proportion of grape varieties that endows the wine with such longevity and such an exceptional character, without the slightest hint of hardness. Grapes : 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot Region : France / Bordeaux / Pauillac AOC Notes : Elegant rather than powerful with a medium body showing fresh pure fruit balanced by creamy oak. A great intensity of flavour making a classic Pauillac. ABV: 12%
