M. Chapoutier Domaine de Bila-Haut Blanc 2012

Côtes du Roussillon, Roussillon, South of France, FranceThis bright, juicy, mineral-marked wine is made in with the same terroir-respectful, biodynamic practices that are the hallmark of Michel Chapoutier's numerous 100-point wines in the Northern Rhone. Here, in warm southern France, he has found stony soiled terraces with black and brown schist, gneiss, limestone and chalk. The blanc is a seamless blend of grenache blanc, grenache gris and macabeu, with pure citrus, quince and pear focus, and scented herb, mineral and apricot spiciness on the medium bodied palate. Lovely juicy lime and herbal white grapefruit on the finish, this would make a fine pair for mussels or white fleshed fish.Tasted: 31 March 2015Tasted by: Prices: BC 18.00 specialty listing AB 18.00 Producer: M.
