Chateau Coupe Roses Minervois Bastide 2003
All their vineyards are hand-harvested. New vineyards have been purchased and replanted to better varieties, while their older vineyards stay in good health thanks to the couple’s organic approach. In the cellar, minimal (or no) racking and extensive lees contact are standard for special cuvees.
Recognized for its concentrated and sultry reds made predominantly of Carignan, Grenache and Syrah, this western Languedoc appellation is also famous for the charming and delicate fortified Vin Doux Naturel called Muscat de St. Jean de Minervois. The dry rosé and white wines of Minervois are also worth seeking out.
