La Tour du Cayrou 2012

La Tour du Cayrou

A single-parcel wine from the best site of the estate.

Vinification All stainless steel. Maceration of 30 days at 27 - 29°C. Aged for 2 years in stainless steel.

Tasting Notes A wine marked by incredible minerality and a very fine, elegant tannic structure. Smells of ripe raspberries mingle with deeper roasted aromas, wild herbs, and black pepper. Tremendous potential for bottle aging.
