Wine production at Château des Tours dates back to the 12th century. The two towers of this fortress recall this medieval age. Today, the estate operates 70 hectares of vineyards in AOC Brouilly with vines averaging 60 years old.
Long vatting periods of more than 15 days are carried out on the largely destemmed harvests. The extraction work is done by reassembly but also by punching down in order to extract color, material and complexity. Fermentations take place under temperature control. The aging then takes place in stainless steel vats for several months.
This wine has a beautiful dark color. On the nose, a complexity is revealed dominated by very ripe fruit, accompanied by floral notes. In the mouth, its frame is bursting with vigor, structured and with a beautiful length on the palate. It is a rich and elegant wine, with a fruity finish.

Serve it at 13-14°C with a roasted capon, a turkey stuffed with chestnuts, a chicken in crapaudine, or a poultry stuffed with fresh truffle and sweet potato. It will also go well with cooked cheeses such as Comté, Beaufort, Gruyère Suisse or tête de Moine.
