Food Pairings for Chateau d'Oupia Minervois
Refreshing rosé at its best: tangy redcurrant and bright strawberry aromas overlaid with hints of orange peel and cinnamon. It is light-bodied and linear on the palate, with excellent mineral cut. It has a very pleasing texture on the finish, the red berry notes lingering.
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.
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)
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.
Black fruit, chocolate, and nut.
External Reviews for Chateau d'Oupia Minervois
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.
Nurtured by warm sun and Mediterranean breezes, the vines of Minervois produce wines of sturdy character and amazing value. Gaze upon the deep garnet color. Experience the flavors of clove, dark berries and cranberries. Sink your teeth into its full-bodied, earthy texture and savor the long, smooth finish. This is a wine for all seasons! You may choose steak or stroganoff, pizza or pastrami, each will taste better with this wine.
In addition to flavorful southern French reds, André Iché's Château d'Oupia produces this fresh, lively Minervois Rosé that delivers a refreshing mouthful of strawberry fruit. Serve it chilled with Mediterranean-style seafood dishes.
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.
From centenarian Carignan, with smaller amounts of Syrah and Grenache, Andre Iche's 2006 Minervois Tradition smells of ripe black cherries backed by the bitter-sweetness of cherry pits and dark chocolate, and (just as with the 2005) Cornas-like elements of raw beef liver. These flavors come together for a strikingly rich, mouth-coating black-fruit, and animal impression. Toasted nut and pungent herbal notes season the rich black-fruit, mole- and meat stock-like finish. I suspect this fascinating and sensually satisfying Minervois would be worth following for 2-3 years in bottle.
A tight red, with a meaty aroma and concentrated damson plum, sanguine and dried cherry flavors. The powerful finish features graphite notes. Drink now through 2010.
Muscular and full-flavored, with a meaty aroma and an intense array of blackberry and olive flavors. Filled to the brim with mocha and espresso notes. There's a touch of elegance to it as well, with fine-grained tannins on the finish. Needs time. Best from 2006 through 2009.
