Château Coupe Roses

A former garaged transformed into tasting cellar and Art gallery. Are the Coupe Roses wines called garage wines? They are actually quality wines. Françoise Frissant-leCalvez and Pascal treat the vine with respect, insisting on organic products, and the harvest is done by hand. In the country of vine, olive trees and honey, the vines planted on Causses pebbles, produce generous wines – somewhat irreverent, like Françoise, or poetic, like her husband Pascal. The white vintage 100% roussanne, raised on schists, contains a slight quantity of minerals. The Minervois Granaxa, 90% grenache on a base of prunes, coffee and chocolate, asserts itself as a good company for poultry. These are totemistic wines. A large part of the production oriented towards export is more than successful in China. Worthy heiress of a whole line of winemakers, Françoise is the ambassador of charm for Minervois. La Caunette is a departure point for the great Minervois roads. Still to be discovered.
