M. Chapoutier Côtes du Roussillon Villages Bila Haut Red 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

*91 Points, Robert Parker* The Chapoutier family have been making wine in the Rhône Valley since 1808, but in 1990 when Michel Chapoutier came to the helm, the wines really began to speak of their origin and he has now expanded into the other areas in France and into the new world. The 'Bila Haut' (from the Languedoc) displays a garnet-red colour. On the nose it has aromas of very ripe black fruit (cherry, blackberry) and spices (pepper, garrigue). Tight but silky tannins as well as a dominance of spice, richness, a good length and an almost ethereal finish. This wine is fleshy, well-structured with the warm and savage of soils of the Roussillon area. Superb with game and truffles. 'In bottle, the 2013 Vignes de Bila Haut checks in as a blend of 40% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 20% Carignan, from a combination of schist and limestone soils, that spent 12 months in a combination of concrete and stainless-steel tanks. It has great aromatics of dark berry fruits, bouquet garni, pepper and lots of minerality, medium+-bodied richness and depth, and a soft, seamless and even elegant fell on the palate. It’s ready to go now, and will drink nicely for 4-5 years'. 91 Points eRobertParker.com April 2015

M. Chapoutier:
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.
