Winemaker's Notes

A blend of Syrah, Grenache and Carignane.

Deep red garnet in color. Black cherries on the nose. Well-structured on the palate with sweet meaty tannins. The wine had the heat and wildness of the Roussillon area.

Pair with a nice piece of beef or Mediterranean food.

Critical Acclaim

"A tank-raised blend of Grenache, Carignan, and Syrah from gneiss and schist sites in various parts of the Agly Valley, Chapoutier’s 2007 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Les Vignes de Bila-Haut possesses an alluring aroma and lovely, deep richness of black raspberry, cherry, and roasted meat, augmented by toasted pecans, coriander, and resinous herbs. With rarified tannins and a vividly juicy fresh fruit presence, this represents an irresistible introduction to its genre for immediate enjoyment, yet the structure here is tightly-enough knit, the balance impeccable, the entire performance loaded with energy, so I see no reason to doubt that this amazing value will be a delight 2-3 years from now as well.
