WineDiva's Review

Fresh, singular, earthy.
This organic, biodynamic and natural wine is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Cinsault.
Situated on a high plateau near the villages of Minerve and La Caunette, the organic vineyards of Chateau Coupe-Roses are at the highest altitude in Minervois, between 250 to 450m above sea level, where cool nights and moderate temperatures allow grapes to ripen slowly, developing great acidity and flavor. Their vineyards, primarily planted to Grenache, Carignan, Syrah and smaller amounts of Cinsault, are in Le Causse and Le Petit Causse. A causse refers to an enormous outcropping of exposed (in this case limestone) rock.
The vineyards are all certified organic and are treated biodynamically, with the sowing of cover crops as part of a naturally regenerative farming regime. They've built a bottling facility and tasting room that are entirely solar-powered. In the cellar, vigneron Matthias Le Calvez works with spontaneous ferments, and sulfur additions are just enough to stabilize the wines for travel.
Notes of plums muddled with black cherry and raspberry, clay, dried violets, saddle leather, tomato leaf and chocolate lead to a palate that is earthy and textural. It has a distinct grapeyness with green spices, watermelon rind, wild purple berries and garrigue flavours. Fresh and singular.
