Domaine Tour Saint-Michel, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Cuvee des Deux Soeurs 2012 (WA 89-92/100)

Grape(s)        :Southern Rhone Red Blend

Description   :

"Looking at the 2012s from barrel, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee Des Deux Soeurs is a blend of roughly 80% Grenache and the rest Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault. Pretty, with leafy herbs, violets, dried spices and black raspberry style fruit, this medium to full-bodied, textured and rich 2012 has fantastic purity of fruit and sweet tannin that emerges on the finish. It should be approachable on release, given the fruit quality and texture, yet also age gracefully.'' -WA'89-92
