Everyone talks about the new quality of wines from the Languedoc. For us, this doesn’t mean the ubiquitous varietal bottlings from irrigated flat vineyards but the wonderful wines coming from the best hillside vineyard sites in AOCs like Minervois, Corbières and Coteaux-du-Languedoc. The Château d’Oupia is one of the best. Les Heretiques is 100% Carignan, 40+ years old. Half of of the wine is fermented in barrel with a maceration of 30 days. The other half is made by carbonic maceration. Château d'Oupia has produced the ideal bistro wine. Dark, ruby-colored, the wine is wonderfully clean and pure, with an exuberant personality, and gobs of rich, peppery, red and black fruit.
