TASTING NOTE: The eight-hectare Château Les Tourelles has been overseen by the Darriet family since 1938. This 2015 is mostly Merlot with some Cabernet Franc, and it offers complex, layered red plum, strawberry, dark cherry, tobacco, mocha and earth tones. Juicy, structured and balanced, with a refined mineral undertone. A great value and a perfect choice for lamb.
