 ** Guest Speaker: FRANCOISE LE CALVEZ
Owner of Chateau Coupe Roses **

n
Francoise Le Calvez and her enologist husband Pascal Frissant (a.k.a. The Poet from the Loire) work Chateau Coupe Roses with passion and acumen high in the Mediterranean hinterlands. Their vineyards are in Le Causse and Le Petit Causse (a causse refers to an enormous outcropping of exposed rock – in this case limestone – that supports little more than garrigue and can cultivate little more than olives and vines). These two delimited areas make up the highest growing zones in the Minervois appelation. At 750 to 1,350 feet above sea level, these zones have relatively cool nights and the growing season is the longest in the AOC (domains down on the plain often begin harvesting a full two weeks earlier). The wines from Coupe Roses have excellent acidity and freshness, which Francoise adores, without any plodding, overripe character, which she doesn’t really adore.
