You should drink the 2010 Chateau des Tours, Cotes du Rhone Blanc


One should really drink all of the Chateau des Tours wines possible including the 2010 Chateau des Tours, Cotes du Rhone Blanc.  Since tasted last summer, it is now drinking at its peak.  This is a substantial white wine that delivers a luxurious mouthfeel which does not fall flat due to the acidity.  I think it is perfect for a fall evening.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2010 Chateau des Tours, Cotes du Rhone Blanc – $30
This wine is 100% Grenache blanc.  Alcohol 14%.  There is the slightest yeast hint on the nose which is predominantly full of orchard fruit.  The nose leaves you unprepared for the tropical fruit flavors that exist in a dense, glycerin filled body.  Flavors of white nuts contribute to the luxury but there is also texture and fine acidity cutting through to the finish.  It even develops a ripe berry note.  **** Now.
