La Touge is a medium bodied red wine made with Syrah and Grenache grapes. This wine is from a parcel of 20Ha with mixed soil of clay, Limestone and sandstone, in appellation CRU LA LIVINIERE. Wine Advocate 91 pts "Easy-drinking raspberry and plum fruit are joined by hints of cracked pepper and garrigue in this medium to full-bodied, silky wine."
Very expressive with some notes smoky, meaty, and dark fruit (black currant; blackberry).
