Michel Chapoutier les Vignes de Bila-Haut Cotes du Roussillon Blanc 2017

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Tasting: Colour: Pale yellow colour with green tints. Nose: The wine exhibits citrus aromas (lemon, grapefruit) with smoky notes. Mouth: Fresh and very aromatic attack. The palate is round, with a great acidity (coming from the later ripening sites at higher altitude). A lot of freshness on the finish mixed with salty notes, which express the minerality of the wine. Grape variety: Blend of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Macabeu. Soil: A part of the grapes comes from limestone and clay soils in the Agly Valley; the other part from granite soils at higher altitude (500m, later ripening sites). Harvest: Grapes are hand-harvested. Winemaking: After pressing, the must is cold-settled. Vinification is performed in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Maturing: Ageing lasts a few months in order to keep all the freshness and enhance the minerality. Alcohol: 13.5%

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.
