From the beginning, sitting in the glass, mysterious and opaque, with its deep brooding purple-black solidity and its irresistible enticing aromas wafting into the air like perfume, the Chateau d’Oupia seizes your attention.
Blackberries on a hot day, so ripe they are about to burst and dribble juice down your chin. Fresh-picked savory herbs crushed in your hands. Dried purple flowers. Dark dusky plums fat and silky in the mouth. Exotic Asian spices, with a whisper of Five Star Anise. Endless layers of deep, intense flavors constantly revealing themselves with each new sip.

Do you know if Le Heretique has always been made half from semi carbonic fermentation and half traditional fermentation?
I always thought that wine had a hint of semi carbonic about it.
