Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 92(+?)

($45; 50% whole clusters; from soil rich in friable rock, quartz and schist that Guthrie describes as "like the Cote Brune") Saturated ruby. Highly complex nose of blackberry, violet, gunflint and brown spices. Primary, sappy and sweet, with the flavors of black fruits, licorice and violet showing impressive energy and definition. Brisk and firm but pliant, and not at all hard. Already showing lovely incipient complexity, but this will be even better for a couple years of patience.

About This Producer


Wells Guthrie is a fervent believer that great wine begins in the vineyard. In pursuit of this, Copain has sought out vineyards with expositions, soil compositions, climates, clones, and rootstock selections capable of producing wines of distinction and singular character.

Copain's winemaking practices aim to express each site's unique qualities. Copain wines are highlighted by lower alcohols, natural vibrant acidity, gentle handling of the fruit and wine, native yeast ferments and minimal use of new oak.
