M. Chapoutier Les Vignes de Bila-Haut 2018 Côtes du Roussillon Villages
Jeb Dunnuck 92 Rating
The 2017 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Les Vignes de Bila Haut reminds me of an impressive St Joseph (despite having lots of Grenache in the blend) with its black raspberry, white pepper, and leafy herb aromas and flavors. It's seamless, elegant, and balanced, with both acidity and richness. Put this in a blind lineup of Northern Rhônes and shock your friends.
Must be ordered.
