Located in Vacqueyras, Château des Tours is the property of the celebrated Emmanuel Reynaud of Château Rayas and Château Fonsalette fame. This domaine spans 40 hectares and produces a Vacqueyras rouge (80% Grenache and 20% Syrah), a Côtes-du-Rhône rouge (65% Grenache, 15% Cinsault and 20% Syrah) and a Côte-du-Rhône blanc (100% Grenache) under the name Château des Tours. It also produces, under the same name, a Vin de Pays de Vaucluse rouge (Grenache, Counoise, Syrah, Cinsault, Merlot and other varieties) and a Vin de Pays de Vaucluse blanc (100% Clairette). Finally, under the ‘Parisy' label it produces a Vin de Table rosé from a blend of Grenache and Cinsault. Great care is taken in the cultivation here although the Domaine isn't scared to take a risk during harvest time. In fact, the grapes are picked when they are as ripe as possible. This Domaine produces high-quality wines that show depth, fruit and exceptional balance. Their complexity and ageing potential make them highly sought-after. It's worth noting also that the Domaine only sells the simple Vin de Pays Vacqueyras after a few years of ageing in their cave.
