M. Chapoutier Les Vignes de Bila-Haut Rouge 2020

Côtes du Roussillon Villages, Roussillon, Sud de France, FranceI have nothing new to say here. Know that the Chapoutier team has one mentality: that every wine should be made to show its absolute best, no matter the price. Bila-Haut is a billboard for the Côtes-du-Roussillon Villages. Fragrant, savoury, mouth-filling with juicy, plummy, wild, peppery fruit, this slides down effortlessly. It is a simply delicious, biodynamically farmed red selling at a bargain price: back up the truck. The syrah, grenache, and carignan are hand-harvested, destemmed, and macerated for two to four weeks before ageing nine months in a 70/30 mix of stainless steel vats and mainly new demi-muids.Tasted: 01 September 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
