Minervois Rouge 2015

Minervois Rouge 2015

Ref: A062215

Powerful and full flavoured, with plenty of plummy fruit, and excellent structure. The Minervois Tradition is 60% Carignan (from vineyards up to 100 years old), 30% Syrah and 10% Grenache. It is aromatic, full and densely colored, with a long finish of dark fruits. The wine is elegant and balanced — it is both enjoyable to drink young and can age 5-7 years. (2015 13.5% abv)

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.

The intelligent use of even older vines and some new oak results in a stunning Cuvée des Barons with incredibly complex and intense fruit. The Minervois Blanc is made from 49% Marsanne and 49% Roussanne (with just a ‘touche’ of Viognier!), resulting in a particularly floral bouquet, soft peachy fruit and a lively, zesty acidity. Last, but by no means least, as Château d’Oupia is one of the region’s very finest estates, comes the hand-crafted, very limited selection which is called Nobilis. This is sourced from a very small parcel of 50 year-old vines situated on steep hillsides in the mountainous Beaufort zone and is almost opaque in colour and has an amazing texture and a formidably complex black-fruit complexity and velvety tannins.
