2013 Domaine Tour Boisée "Marie Claude" Minervois

SKU #1216781

Just to the north of Cobieres and to the east of the walled city of Carcassonne, lies Minervois. The appellation has equally diverse soils like Corbieres but limestone and clay are its primary ones. This is a warm region with a very Mediterranean climate. The hills are covered with the local scrub, known as garrigue, forests and vineyards. Our newest producer from the region is Domaine Tour Boisée. The domaine dates back to 1826 and is still run by its descendants. Now farming about 200 hectares of vines, the winery was recently certified organic. The "Marie Claude" is a blend of equal parts Syrah, Grenache and Carignan. The grapes are planted on clay, limestone soils over sandstone rocks. Each variety is fermented and aged separately for 12 months before final blending.

This gracious little Minervois has dark, black fruits, particularly boysenberry and deep, black cherries. It is soft and esay to drink with just a touch of tannin on the finish. A real bargain at this price!

Going a bit deeper than the basic Minervois from this producer, the "Marie Claude" is the namesake wine for the Proprietress of the winery. Showing great richness and depth with juicy blackberry and currant flavors, so much garrigue and Asian spicebox on the nose. This is sumptuous but not overblown. A terrific wine that reaches that next level of character.
