Domainne Tour Saint Michel har eksisteret i tre generationer siden 1930 og blev grundlagt af Henri Fabre i 1930. Vingården råder over 40 ha, heraf 35 i den sydlige del af Châteauneuf-du Pape. I dag drives vingården af datteren Mireille, og stilen er de sidste 10 år blevet markant moderne.
Mireille fokuserer på at producere stilrene, elegante vine som samtidig bevarer Châteauneuf-du-Papes typiske kendetegn af fylde og krydderier. Hun har en klar "feminin" stil, som er faldet i mange vinkritikeres smag, herunder Robert Parker og Wine Spectator. Alle druer håndhøstes og håndsorteres og lagrer både i de traditionelle store fade "foudres", samt i barriques.
Cuvée Tour du Lion er en moderne Châteauneuf-du-Pape, den har en meget intens mørkerød farve, stor bouquet af sort frugt og krydderier, smagen er kraftig og meget kompleks, og slutter med en lang eftersmag af velourbløde tanniner.

  • 91 pts - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar d. 16.01.13: "Bright ruby. Sexy, oak-spiced aromas of raspberry and cherry-cola are complemented by hints of anise and candied flowers. Supple and expansive, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors that put on weight with air. Energetic and precise, with strong finishing cut and lingering spiciness."
  • 92 pts - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate November 2012: "The full- bodied 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape La Tour du Lion displays impressive fruit intensity as well as a seductive, up-front character, but more power, density and meatiness than the Deux Soeurs. It exhibits plenty of peppery, roasted Provencal herb, strawberry and kirsch aromas as well as blacker fruits on the palate. Nicely textured, rich and full, it is capable of lasting 10-15 years."
  • 94 pts - The Rhône Report by Jeb Dunnuck oktober 2012: "More traditional and mineral-laced, the 2010 La Tour du Lion is a blend of 75% Grenache, 20% Syrah, and 5% Mourvedre that is aged mostly in tank, with 20% of the blend seeing 2-year-old barrels. Elegant and more approachable than the Feminessence, it delivers plenty of black fruit characteristics to go with notions of smoked earth, wet stone, and meaty qualities, with only a hint of the barrique aging showing. This is followed by a full-bodied, gorgeously fruited 2010 that has a fleshy, mouth filling texture, brilliant purity, and a seamless finish. It should be better in a handful of years, and have 10-12 years or more of overall longevity."
  • 93 pts i Wine Spectator Insider d. 13.08.12: "Very bright and enticing, with an almost piercing feel to the racy loganberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit, which is carried by a lovely floral edge. Sleek and tightly focused, with brisk acidity that's well- embedded and a long, pastis-tinged finish that has ample depth in reserve. Should blossom with cellaring. Best from 2014 through 2030."
  • 18,5/20 pts af Jancis Robinson januar 2012: "Lustrous dark crimson. Very ripe but with some sweetness and real tension. Very full and plush and exotic. But not heavy nor too sweet and the alcohol is wonderfully well carried. In fact the wine is almost cool on the finish. This is lovely; the tannins are well hidden but definitely present. Mainly ripe fruit but lots of spice and an attractive edge of tarriness."
