Product Description

Jean-Marie purchased his Provençal estate, Château des Tourettes, in 1997. It is located a few kilometres from the beautiful 'Roman' market town of Apt, at an altitude of 420 metres, in the foothills of the stunning Luberon Mountain chain. Not one known for doing it by the book, in classic Guffens style he immediately set about ruffling the feathers of his neighbours and the AOC authorities of the sleepy Côtes du Luberon with his viticultural and winemaking ideas. He grew varieties, like Chardonnay, that were not permitted in the AOC and he made his rosé entirely from Syrah - sacre bleur. He bottled the wines under screwcap and the coup de grâce that really got tongues wagging was when he released a multi vintage red and white "As time goes by..."

"The white is assembled from 50 per Marsanne and decreasing amounts of Roussanne, Viognier and Chardonnay. We can tell you that this botting comes mainly from 2010 and 2011 although we understand there is a little older material in the blend, too. We can also tell too that it's a wine all about texture; it's viscous, mouth-coating, chewy even, but tangy and fresh as a daisy to boot. It smell's a little like a mint pistou; fragrant pine nuts, mint and ground Provençal herbs. The palate is creamy rich yet with plenty of bite and structure; super-refreshing. It's a wine for drinking, not for tasting; it may appear too firm at first glance. Get it on the table you'll find something completely different.
