Domaine de la Tournelle was created in 1991 by Evelyne and Pascal Clairet, with barely two acres of vines; it has since grown to 15 acres.
Grapes are hand harvested in small baskets. Grapes are sorted by hand and destemmed before undergoing a very light press. The fruit undergoes a full carbonic maceration. Only native yeast is used and the juice undergoes a full malolactic fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks before it is transferred to old oak barrels where it rests for 3-4 months.
92 Points - "Domaine de la Tournelle Uva Arbosiana 2018 is a smooth red wine with a character similar to that of a Pinot Noir wine but with a more rustic and flavoursome personality. On the nose it offers aromas of fresh and wild red fruits, with a woody nuance. A delicate and absolutely delicious red." - Decanter Magazine
