Product Description:

"This special cuvee made by Andre Iche is a blend of Carignan from 70-year-old vines and Syrah. A complex and hearty red, Les Heretiques is bursting with ripe berry flavor. The tannins are well-balanced and the finish long. And at such a reasonable price, it is as popular as its formidable sibling, Chateau d'Oupia Minervois. Les Heretiques commemorates the massacre of Minereve in 1208. Inhabited by members of the Cathari religious order, a pacifist Christian, non-conformist group that prospered during the Middle Ages, the destruction in Minereve was only one of the many Crusades led by the Roman Catholic Church, who, calling the Cathari 'heretics,' persecuted them in town after town. The Cathars' story, one of the unquenchable spirit of man, juxtaposed with the inhumanity of man, imparts new significance on Languedoc's ruined towers and castles, some sitting high and seemingly inaccessible, on mountaintops." -Importer
