User Reviews for Cotes du Roussillon Villages Blanc Bila Haut Chapoutier

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2012 Cotes du Roussillon Les Vignes de Bila-Haut – representing, as usual, tank-raised Grenache Blanc, Macabeu, and Grenache Gris, some from chalky soils around Latour-de-France, but largely from granite heights in Lesquerde – beautifully illustrates not just the ability of Roussillon whites to convey vivacity, juiciness and invigoration at relatively low acidity, but also the ability of the best growers and sites to render gorgeous whites despite the challenges of the 2012 vintage. More than that, it offers incomprehensible value! Peach fuzz, lime zest, mint, fennel white pepper, salt, alkalinity, and an ineffable and uncanny sense of crystalline mineral impingement all keep this juicy cuvee invigorating as well as intriguing, and it manages to at once envelope the palate in luscious pineapple and peach fruit while at the same time broadcasting shimmering, vibratory interactivity into a finish notable not just for its vibrancy and complexity but also its sheer refreshment. (Unfortunately, the 2011 rendition was omitted from the line-up I tasted in the spring because not a bottle was to be found at the winery and I subsequently did not have chance to track-down one.) ...92" WA 01/14
