Minervois, Cuvée Les Barons

Minervois, Cuve Les Barons

Ref: A060613

The intelligent use of even older vines and some new oak results in a stunning Cuvée Les Barons with incredibly complex and intense fruit. The wine is a blend of 60% Carignan and 40% Syrah and is aged in small oak barriques for 20 months. Rich, spicey berry flavours and well-ripended tannins produce a full-bodied and intense flavour.

We were very sad to hear that André Iché, Oupia's charming owner, died at the end of 2007 but his daughter, Marie-Pierre, has taken over the reins and will no doubt continue the remarkable run of award-winning wines from the Minervois region. The 45-hectare estate surrounds the sleepy hamlet of Oupia and the preponderance of old vines (along with the magic ingredient of 100 year-old Carignan vines) guarantees a succulent, intense and richly coloured ‘villages’ Minervois.
