 DOMAINE DES TOURS AND CHATEAU DES

TOURS OFFER

CHATEAU DES TOURS - DOMAINE
DES TOURS – FROM EMMANUEL REYNAUD OF CHATEAU RAYAS

I am pleased to offer the new vintage of  Domaine des Tours and Château des Tours , the
wines have just been release. Emmanuel Reynaud also makes the most famous and
expensive but exceptional Château Rayas in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Emmanuel offer
is wines only there are ready to drink so now the 2011 and the great 2008
Vacqueyras. Mostly Sold in the USA, I have been able to
secure some red and white for UK.

THE ESTATE

The modest sixteenth century château which
gives this estate its name lies hidden in a maze of small country lanes between
Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Vacqueyras. It is the heart of what is a relatively
large domaine, with part of the 58ha being given over to cereals and fruit
trees. The best land however is reserved exclusively for vines, giving 40ha of
Vins de Pays (on the rich, black, sandy soils) and Côtes du Rhône and
Vacqueyras (on the poorer stony, gravely soils).

It was the grandfather of the current owner, Emmanuel Reynaud, who bought the
estate back in 1938. At the time the vineyards where rather dilapidated and the
task was left to his father to replant many of the vines. Emmanuel has
continued this process of regeneration, matching the right varieties to the
right soils, putting in trellising on the flatter land and keeping the bush
vines for the steeper slopes, all the time using a minimum of chemicals,
eschewing completely insecticides and weedkillers, preferring to work the soils
mechanically to keep the Bad grass at bay. One cannot, however, classify the
estate as organic, as Emmanuel has a deep-seated aversion to any form of
categorization.

So what is his philosophy? This is not the easiest of things to sum up, as it
is difficult to tell when Emmanuel is being serious, but what one can say that
he is a traditionalist, in many senses of the word. He states his guiding
principles as the “respect de la creation” (which might also explain the
half-a-dozen children) and the work in the vineyards which allows each vintage
to be a true reflection of that year. Since the death of his uncle, Emmanuel
has taken up the reins at Rayas. From the Great Châteauneuf to Vin Pays,
all wines her are exceptional.
