This wine is deceptively complex... wonderful mouth feel; fruit mixed with what I can only describe as "animal fat rubbed into wood" or "butcher block" flavors and associated aromas...delightful "old world" French wine.

the better of two rose wines we tried. Smooth finish. A little butter. I'm confused that the varietal is syrah, I thought it was supposed to be Grenache.

Substantial mouth feel, spice, dark berries, long finish. Very satisfying at this price point. Not sure what Wine Spectator was tasting.

A deep-bodied, dry rose with great balance and rich texture. Robert Parker has consistently praised this estate and rated the wine a best buy writing, Chateau d'Oupia has produced the ideal bistro wine. Dark, ruby-colored, the wine is wonderfully clean and pure, with an exuberant personality, and gobs of rich, peppery, red and black fruit.

Straightforward yet charming flavors. Dark berries, pepper, minerals, slightly sanguine and sometimes even meaty... Its just amazingly good, and it is even better two days after opening. (from: http://vindelatable.blogspot.com/2008/03/chateau-doupia-minervois-my-comfortable.html)

An aromatic and densely colored red wine, full-bodied with generous blackberry and raspberry flavors. Fine tannins, along with accents of pepper and spice, make this an elegant and well-balanced wine.

Kraftvoller Languedoc mit süssem Extrakt, weichem, fleischigem Tanninfluss und noblem Holzton ohne Übergewicht. Duftet verführerisch nach wilden Brombeeren und dunkler Schokolade. Ein körperreicher, dicht gepackter, fester Languedoc, der mit wesentlich hochpreisigeren Konkurrenten mithalten kann! Einer der zuverlässigsten preiswerten Rotweine des Languedoc und mehrfacher Testsieger in der REVUE DU VIN DE FRANCE.
