The 2007 Château Tour Boisée À Marie Claude Minervois, composed of equal amounts of Grenache, Carignan noir and Syrah, has deep aromas of black cherry, raspberry, smoke and cedar on the nose and pomegranate, black cherry, and subtle coconut and vanilla on the palate. It is a medium to full bodied, integrated wine with good, forward acidity, refined tannins (decant for 30 min) and a medium to long, smooth finish. It is food friendly or can be sipped by itself; drink now to 2018/20. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 90-91 pts – recommended buy for its quality and price. Tasted April/13 at WineAlign Cru tasting.
