Winemaker and vineyard: Just a few wall sections and a tower of the old castle belonging to the lords of Oupia have survived through the ages. In 1860, Romain Iché purchased the castle, his grandson André Iché inherited it in 1970. He built the cellar and the wineries up again, making the vineyard a benchmark in the Minervois appellation. After his death in 2007, his daughter took up his lifework.
Tasting: Opulent wine, who will catch your attention with his special sweetness on the nose. In the mouth, he reveals his juicy-sweet, almost oily structure, and develops all of his powerful and racy character.
Service: Drink it between 16 and 18°C. It is perfect to beefsteak, but also to red meats, ratatouille or game.
