Description

The Roussillon area was made for Michel Chapoutier and it was in Latour de France that he set up Domaine de Bila-Haut, on a combination of soils perfectly suited to spicy Syrah, fruity Grenache and tannic Carignan – key Languedoc-Roussillon varieties – basked in the southern French sun and freshened up by the coastal ‘tramontane’ wind. Black and brown schist give the wine the sunny ripeness, gneiss minerality and freshness and limestone and chalk strength and balance.
Roussillon wines from contoured terraces with stony soils and rich geology.

Vineyards and Winery: Grapes – Grenache, Syrah and Carginan.  The plots are located on the slopes of the high Agly Valley. They are composed of gneiss and schist from the Devonian Period. Hand-harvest and entirely destemmed. The maceration lasts from 2 to 4 weeks.  Aged in wood vats.

Tasting notes – Aromas of black cherry, on the palate this wine is fleshy, full of black fruits, velvety and well-structured, finishes with nuances of the hillsides of the Roussillon.
