Color: Pale yellow colour with green tints. Nose: The wine exhibits citrus aromas (lemon, grapefruit) with smoky notes. Mouth: Fresh and very aromatic attack. The palate is round, with a great acidity (coming from the later ripening sites at higher altitude). A lot of freshness on the finish mixed with salty notes, which express the minerality of the wine.

Wine AdvocateStill not yet in bottle, the 2014 Cotes du Roussillon Les Vignes de Bila Haut is blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 20% Marsanne, 20% Macabeu and 10% Vermentino that's brought up all in tank. Beautifully perfumed, it has lots of lychee, tangerine, citrus and salty minerality to go with a medium-bodied, fresh, lively feel on the palate. This gains depth and texture with time in the glass, and will be versatile on the dinner table. It should be another awesome value from this team, and drink well for 1-2 years.
