M. Chapoutier Côtes du Roussillon Bila Haut Blanc 2014
|Appellation||Cotes de Roussillon|
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.
Wine SpectatorThis white has a pretty profile of floral, peach and creamed melon flavors, with underlying spice and mineral elements. Nicely textured, featuring a juicy acidity that lifts the perfumed finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases made.
