Based in Minervois, the Tour Boisee family estate was originally built around 1826. Jean-Louis Poudou and his wife Marie-Claude currently own and run the vineyards and winery. Every generation of the family has proven to be as passionate and dedicated to the terroir as their ancestors have been. The "Tour" (Tower), for which the estate is named, was part of the village's fortifications back in the 12th century and still stands in their garden to this day. The estate produces a large line of impressively well-made and delicious wines.


The 2016 Tour Boisée is a blend of 50% Syrah and 50% Grenache. The wine pours a deep ruby with violet hues. On the nose, fresh aromas of blueberries, blackberries and plum leap from the glass. On the palate, the dark fruit flavors are complimented by a hint of spice.

The wine is juicy and lively with a broad, expansive mouthfeel, soft tannins and integrated acidity. Subtle flavors of chocolate and mocha are sprinkled on top of the lip-smacking finish.

Best bang for buck!
