Deep garnet red with aromas of black cherry, this wine is fleshy, well-structured with the warm and savage of soils of the Roussillon area.
It was in Latour de France that he chose to set up his domain. Occultum Lapidem is the first expression of this terroir. Then there followed 6 years of reflexion, observation and analysis to produce a precious, rare wine: v.i.t. The story continued near a little village called Lesquerde. Steep, craggy limestone, arid soil, battered by the tramontane wind… A wine wriggled free from the grasp of nature: L’esquerda. Eventually, Single Vineyard Selections r.i. and Chrysopée were able to reveal new nuances of this oh-so-precious terroir.
The 2019 Domaine Bila-Haut Côtes du Roussillon-Villages is a blend of Syrah, Grenache, and Carignan sourced from the steep slopes of the Agly Valley. Aged entirely in concrete vats and stainless steel instead of oak in order to showcase the wine’s gorgeous fruit- and terroir-driven characters, it is medium-to-full-bodied, loaded with dark, brambly fruits, and superbly well-balanced.
Pairs well with beef, pasta, and veal dishes.
