Chapoutier Latour de France Domaine de Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

91-92 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): From Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah... scented with rosemary, sage, blackberry, mulberry, which are joined on a rich, expansive palate by marrow-rich meatiness and a striking, saline, iodine-tinged savor that I can only liken to shrimp shell reduction... The sense of clarity, brightness, and energy here is utterly infectious and the combination of pure dark fruits, invigoratingly pungent smokiness, and saliva-inducing salinity is bound to induce hunger...
