2019 Tour de L’Isle Luberon
Tour de l’Isle’s Robert Rocchi works with a handful of growers with some prized vineyards in the southern Rhône Valley. He makes the final blending decisions with these respective growers at their estates. The fruit for Robert’s Luberon is sourced from a vineyard in the village of Ménerbes, in the heart of Luberon. It has been certified organic since the 2016 vintage.
This one’s for those of us who love a layered, perfumy bouquet of dark berry fruits, cherries, and spice. It’s mostly Syrah and Grenache, with a little Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan blended in for added complexity. It’s a great cocktail wine; that fruitiness persists through the finish. Grilled chops will pair here also, especially the fattier the better.
