The Chapoutier family have long had an amazing reputation for quality in the Rhône. Now Michel Chapoutier has followed his nose to discover other great vineyards in the Roussillon. From his Bila Haut estate, this is a superb, spiced fruit red.
The Chapoutier name is synonymous with some of the finest wines of the Rhône. The family founded an estate in the northern Rhône's prized Hermitage region in 1808 and it has stayed in the family since. Michel Chapoutier took charge in the 1980s, introducing braile on his labels, single vineyard wines and meticulous biodynamic methods. His adventurous spirit made him look further afield for great estates and in 2000 he bought Bila Haut in the Roussillon. Terroir is of the utmost importance to him and his wines must taste real! This is a gloriously expressive red using Syrah, Grenache and Carignan from his rugged Roussillon vineyards. With silky black cherry, bramble fruit and spice, this is a top wine for roast meats or sausage casserole.
"Typical Roussillon beauty. Hefty but with perfect balance, fruity with a herbal edge"
