Domaine Tour Boisee Minervois Rosé 2012

I had thoroughly enjoyed Domaine Tour Boisee Carignan, not only was it packed with jammy fruit and cozy spice, it was a phenomenal value at $7. So I was couldn’t wait to give the Rosé a pour on a much too warm and humid early evening. Domaine La Tour Boisee is a family estate founded in 1826 and located in the heart of the Minervois appellation in southern France. Today the estate consists of 200 acres of vineyards over 2500 olive trees, some of which date all the way back to the 17th century. Marie-Claude took over the estate in 1982 from her parents, and along with her husband Jean-Louis, himself from a long line of grape growers, they passionately tend to the terrior and old vines.

Orange coral in colour with aromas of baked apple and flinty minerals. Apple, strawberry and honeysuckle flavours merged into a zippy citrus zest finish. Pleasantly perky yet with a rather delicate perspective, this is a delightful glass to enjoy by itself or with light dishes.
