Wine Advocate
The 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape La Tour du Lion is composed of 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Mourvedre and Cinsault from 55-year-old vines aged in a combination of foudre, stainless steel tank and a handful of barrels. It possesses loads of raspberry and black cherry fruit, good freshness, a silky texture, medium to full body and a slightly longer finish than the Deux Soeurs.

Winery Information
Since its establishment in 1930, Tour Saint Michel has been gaining a firm ground amongst many wine experts and judges, with its consistent quality and typical style of Chateauneuf-du-Pape produced by Mireilles Porte, the current winemaker of the estate, assisted by the famous consultatnt, Xavier Vignon. Robert Parker has his eye on this estate and quoted it as 'Major up and coming estate'.

Wine Note
'La Cuvee du Lion' (or La Tour du Lion) is traditionally styled Chateuneuf-du-Pape, with a blend of 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 5% Cinsault-Mourvedre. All grapes are hand-harvested with long vatting time. Matured 40% in 1 year-old french barrels and 60% in concrete tanks (in order to preserve fruits' freshness while keeping temperature cool in the tanks).
Dark ruby colour with garnet rim. Complex aromas of dried red fruits, sweet spicies. Full-bodied with warm fruits, flinty mineral notes, fine, intergrated tannins and very well balanced acidity. Well-polished, elegant and velvety wine, with no hot sensation given the alcohol level is 15% Abv.

Pair with grilled game dish and mature, strong flavoured cheese.
