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