90 points Wine Advocate
The property has belonged to the family for several generations. Frédéric Haut, who is André Richard’s son-in-law, is the 4th generation to take control of the winemaking responsibilities at the domaine. Tourade covers 20 hectares including the appellations Gigondas (8 hectares), Vacqueyras (8 hectares), Muscat de Beaumes de Venise (2 hectares) and Cotes du Rhone (2 hectares). Grenache for the Font des Aieux cuvee is from the domaine’s oldest parcels, now 80+ years old and located in the Dentelles de Montmirail.
Dark red, brilliant color. Intense nose, spice and pepper, red fruit compote. Long & persistent on the palate with pretty tannins. A very high quality Rhône wine that is ideal with all game and red meats.
