Domaine la Tour Boisée - Amuse Bouche 2020
Based in Minervois, the Tour Boisée 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.
Amuse-Bouche is Tour Boisée's savory offering to show the direction and personality of the vintage. Made from 90% Merlot and 10% Malbec fermented in concrete tanks. The wine shows a vibrant purple color with aromas of plums, blueberries, cassis and purple flowers. Juicy and fresh on the palate with soft tannins and a core of ripe fruit, this wine is best enjoyed as a sipper before a meal or with light savory bites.
