Domaine Tour Saint-Michel, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Cuvee du Lion 2012 (WA93)

Grape(s)          : Southern Rhone Red Blend

Description     :

"More concentrated, youthful and pure than the Cuvee des Deux Sœurs, the smoking 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape la Tour du Lion boasts terrific notes of kirsch, blackberry, roasted meats and Asian spice. Made from 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre, aged 12 months in 20% barrels and 80% concrete, it’s a beautifully Provencal, medium to full-bodied, polished effort that will evolve gracefully for 10-12 years." -WA'93
