Château Coupe-Roses is situated in La Caunette, little and beautiful village in Minervois, just close to the Montagne Noire (Black Mountain litterally). The vines thrive on wide limestone uplands between 250 and 400m - a suitable climate for aromas and acidity preservation. Certified organic since 2013, the wines have been noted in various wine publications and the winery was highlighted by Jancis Robinson on her article about regional wines.
Jan and Florian Thienpont are brothers who have taken over their father's domaine in Cote de Francs. The name Thienpont is quite well known in Bordeaux as they own several wine estates, including the famous Vieux Chateau Certan and Chateau Le Pin. We are proud to work with the new generation of this respected family as they present their latest wines.
The area of Benevento, in addition to representing the place where we have the highest concentration of vines, is today full of a productive enthusiasm, thanks to new young people. In this context, we can find Maria Pina, Mariano and Raffaele Assini, young wine entrepreneurs with a very long family tradition. In 2003 they decided to embark on a new project called “Castelle”.
The objective of this project is to set a high value on the typical characteristics of ancient autochthonous and traditional vines of the Sannio, through modern technologies, as well as the respect of the tradition and the connection with the place of origin. The grapes, in particular Aglianico and Falanghina, selected according to accurate qualitative indicators,originate from the hills of Sannio and Castelvenere, an ancient village in the province of Benevento. Here the vine and its cultivation represent the signs of the cultural and social identity of the territory.
