Chapoutier / 2017 Bila Haut Occultum Lapidem

COUNTRY/REGION: France/Côtes du Roussillon.

GRAPES: Syrah, Grenache and Carignan.

ABV: 15%

DETAILS OF PRODUCTION: Passion for terrior took Michel Chaputier south to Roussillon where he bought land in the village of Latour de France. Domaine Bila-Haut is farmed both organically and bio-dynamically. The vineyard is located on Gneiss and schistous soils from the Devonian Period and limestone from Kimmeridgian Period. Grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed. Extraction is only carried out by punching of the cap during a long maceration (at least four weeks). About a half matured in vats and the other half is aged in casks according to the vintage.

TASTING NOTES: Dark garnet-red in colour. Initially the nose has a dominant graphitic and leather aroma, changing to reveal notes of pepper and black fruits. On the palate the wine is rich, dense and fleshy. Delicate tannins and a great freshness add to the complex flavours.

DELIVERY: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.

As such, please allow between 7 and 10 days for your delivery to arrive.
