Château des Tourettes is an estate owned by the iconic Mâconnais wine producers, Maine and Jean-Marie Guffens. It is located on the Apt plateau, in the Rhône Valley. The couple has completely reorganised the vineyard in order to make it an ideal terroir for the production of white wines.
Thanks to the vineyard’s new landscape design and in particular the replanting of massal selections, Château des Tourettes is an estate that comprises a very nice terroir in the Rhône Valley, located at 400 meters of altitude. The soil is limestone-rich. The grapes come mainly from the plot on the Aigle plateau.
Vinification and ageing
Following manual harvesting, a pressing with selection of the juices is carried out in order to keep only the first juices and to preserve a very good acidity. The wine is aged in barrels, 25% of which are new, for 8 months on its lees and then 10 months on fine lees.
The aromatic bouquet of Tinus 2016 reveals the intensity of yellow-fleshed fruits.
Tinus 2016 is a rich, dense and full-bodied wine. Its length and mineral elements provide it with an expressive character.
