REGION: Pauillac, Bordeaux
VARIETIES: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
For some time, this second wine of a famous Bordeaux château has been a bit of a wine trade secret. Its big brother, Ch. Pichon-Baron, has produced some of the most iconic wines of Bordeaux over the last 30 years, and Les Tourelles has often given its fans not just a glimpse of the Grand Vin, but something truly fantastic in its own right. The 2010 vintage was one the finest in Bordeaux of the past few decades. This is a wonderful opportunity to get a glimpse at one of the world's best wine-producers at a fraction of the cost of their top wine.
