The Domaine Tour Saint Michel has been a family estate for 3 generations.
At first, Michel FABRE, the founder of the estate in 1930, passed on his passion to his son, Henri.
Together with his wife Eliane, he developed and extended the estate. Today, the vines cover 40 hectares, including 35 hectares in the appellation Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
Mireille, their daughter, is now in charge of the estate, inspired by the family tradition but also bringing a more modern approach.

The estate is located in Chateauneuf-du-Pape,in the south of the appellation (Grand Coulet, Les Serres ..)

The wines of the estate are developed by Mireille and reveal her more feminine touch. This results in subtle and round aromas while keeping the typicity of Chateauneuf du Pape wines.
After being hand-harvested and processed with a strict selection, the grapes are taken to the cellar in order to be destemmed and transferred into tanks.

For white wine, the grapes are pressed out right after they come in from the harvest. At the beginning of the alcoholic fermentation, we separate the juice in 2 parts: a part is vinified in oak barrels, and the other part is vinified in stainless steel vats at low temperature (15°).
For red wine, during the alcoholic fermentation, we proceed to different stages: control of temperature by cooling system, pumping over, ventilation, punching of the cap.

The way we age the red Chateauneuf du Pape wines depends on the different cuvees - either in concrete tank, in cask or in oak barrels.
