M. Chapoutier Domaine de Bila-Haut Blanc 2017

Côtes du Roussillon, Roussillon, South of France, FranceI hadn't tasted this wine in years, so was great to come across a bottle of this Roussillon blend of grenache blanc, roussanne, marsanne and macabeu. Chapoutier's familiar braille labels and biodynamic beliefs trickled down to southern France and the stony soiled terraces of Côtes du Roussillon, imparting a watery white of lemon blossom, pear skin, underripe melon and white grapefruit pith along a lean palate. The finish is clipped and bright, with a slight flush of warmth and a rise of sour citrus and lemon thistle. Chill this and pour with Thai scented curry or seafood.Tasted: 07 November 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 16.99 BCLS Producer: M. ChapoutierDistributors: Dandurand
