Chateau Coupe Roses Minervois 2005 Cuvee Vignals

R0017314 (by Phanix)

As smelling and drinking, this beautiful label wine gives me an impression of southern France style, and reminds me M. Chapoutier Côtes du Roussillon Villages 2008 Latour Domaine de Bila-Haut. Not as rich as Bila-Haut, but it still has similar wild flavors. After checking the information on Internet, this wine is from Minervois AOC, which is nearby Côtes du Roussillon AOC (Bila-Haut's region).

Wet dog fur (interesting and not-disgusting), black berry, pepper, mint. Dense nose aromas, but the body is not so strong. A little pepper spicy with some dry date (黑棗) palate. Still young, so that the finish is a little bitter.
