CHATEAU LA TOUR DU PIN 2006 - Saint Emilion

£37.98

 Elegant Saint Emilion Grand Cru.  Medium bodied Claret with a fresh, intense and complex bouquet with a nicely integrated woody touch.  Flavours of black cherries, strawberry compote and ripe raspberries with notes of anise and cherry blossom.  Silky tannins and long finish.  Ages well.

70% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc.  13% abv.  75cl
 

A supreme wine with a vibrant intense flavour, full bodied, smooth, well balanced, good blend of grapes with the Merlot softening it, a lovely bouquet and berry fruits coming through, the best wine of the evening. This wqas a great opportunity to taste some fine wines in discerning company and everyone agreed that the St Emilion was exceptional.

Description
Wine Style:  Medium Bodied Red

A rare opportuni
ty to try a wine that no longer exists.  La Tour du Pin is a Saint Emilion Grand Cru and is owned by Bernard Arnault and Albert Frère of LVMH (who also own the Sauternes Great First Growth Château d'Yquem, Saint Emilion First Growth Classé A Cheval Blanc and Quinault L'Enclos).  Since its purchase by Arnault and Frère / LVMH only a few vintages of this lovely Claret were made before the best of its vineyards were absorbed into Chateau Cheval Blanc.

If we go back in time La Tour du Pin was originally part of the great Figeac estate (as was Cheval Blanc). Figeac is the largest estate in Saint Emilion and is also one of the oldest Bordeaux estates. The first known historical reference to the Figeac estate dates back t
o the 2nd century AD, when extensive lands and a large Gallo-Roman villa were known to bear the name of their owner, the Roman pro-Consul Figeacus.

La Tour du Pin pairs beautifully with feathered game such as pheasant, guinea fowl, wild duck and partridge.  It
also pairs well with beef, venison and lamb, beef wellington and steak.

Recommended food and wine pairing:
Super with Confit de Canard Pommes Sarladaises (duck confit cooked with potatoes in Sarladaises bacon, parsley, garlic and herb sauce from Sarlat), Confit de Canard aux Lentilles (duck confit cooked in a flavoursome Puy lentil sauce) and Confit de Canard Gastonomique (award winning duck confit from Castelnaudary).
