Domaine de Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem Rouge 2016
"A big, rich, concentrated, unctuous effort... a smorgasbord of cassis, black currants, peppery herbs and crushed violets" 93-95 Points, Robert Parker.
Chapoutier is situated in Tain-l’Hermitage in the Rhone region in France. Chapoutier produces wine from appellations across the Rhône region, the Bila-Haut wines are from the Rousillon region and are widely seen as some of the very best wines being produced here. They always receive high praise from the press and in particular Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
“I continue to be blown away by the quality coming from Domaine de la Bila Haut, the quality is stunning…. In short, these are fabulous wines. Don’t miss them.” Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate
"A big, rich, concentrated, unctuous effort that's not for those looking for lightweight aromas and flavors, the inky colored 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem (50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 5% Carignan and 5% Mourvèdre) offers up a smorgasbord of cassis, black currants, peppery herbs and crushed violets. Rich, full-bodied and even tannic, it should improve with a year or so in bottle and keep through 2026." 93-95 Points, Robert Parker.
