Francoise Le Calvez's Chateau Coupe Roses, in the tiny village of La Caunette, Languedoc is one of our favorite wine estates.  Her family has lived and farmed this land in southern France for twelve generations.  She and her oenoligist husband, Pascal Frissant, make lovely wines from high elevation vineyards near Minerve.  Her red Minervois wines are spicy, purely fruity blends of Grenache (locally called Granaxa), Syrah and Carignan that are balanced with lovely acidity.  We'll have four of her reds as well as a crisp, delicious blend of Grenache Blanc and Muscat and the just released 2016 rosé!
