Availability: In stock

Varietals: 90% Carignan & 10% Syrah

Dark, ruby-colored, the wine is wonderfully clean and pure, with an exuberant personality, and gobs of rich, peppery, red and black fruit

History figures prominently in this, the main, bottling from Château d'Oupia: "Les Hérétiques" is named in recogntion of the Cathars, a heretical Christian group once based on the Languedoc but wiped out by order of Pope Innocent III in 1208 in response to the murder of a papal representative by a Cathar supporter near Minervois. The castle which is the home of Château d'Oupia dates back to this time as well.
