2009 Château Coupe Roses "La Bastide" Minervois

SKU #1070884

Situated on a plateau around the villages of Minerve and La Caunette, Françoise le Calvez and Pascal Frissant work their domaine, Château Coupe Roses, with passion and care. Named for exposed rock and garrigue, their vineyards lie in the highest region of Minervois, between 750 and 1,350 feet above sea level. Cool nights and a long growing season help Château Coupe Roses produce wines of excellent acidity and freshness. "La Bastide" is an intense mouthful of mountain fruit, predominantly grenache and carignan with a touch of syrah at a great price. 13% abv.

Absolutely delightful drinkable minerally wine. longish finish. Cannot get enough of this wine that is easy to drink, pairs well with many foods. Not as heavy as some of the Rhone style wines in the southern region. One of my top wines for the price.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
