Chateau d'Oupia Minervois Rose 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Producer: André Iché inherited an impressive 13th century castle and a large estate in the barren Minervois region. Iché was never a member of his village coop, tended his very old vines and made his wines but sold everything in bulk to local négociants. Fifteen years ago, a Burgundian winemaker happened to be in Oupia, tasted Iché’s wines, and was so enthused that he convinced Iché to bottle and market his production. He expanded his vineyard holdings and now also vinifies several cuvées of Minervois with the best production, the Cuvée des Barons and Nobilis, aged in new oak barrels. He rebuilt the cellar, and is now contemplating buying and cleaning up some overgrown and steep terraces that have been abandoned since the late 19th century. TastingNotesThis pure and expressive rosé evokes the clay and limestone hillside slopes of the Languedoc's increasingly important Minervois AOC. A blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault, the wine features raspberry and strawberry fruit on the nose and a bright and fresh palate.

Tried it at a local bistro. All four of us enjoyed it. Medium body with nice bouquet, little fruity but really an excellent value. We ordered a case through a local distributor. Both vintages 2012 & 2013 were great.
