Michel Chapoutier first made a name with remarkable Rhône wines. Now he does the same in other top regions, including the Roussillon’s Latour de France. From high, herb-strewn hills, he uses native grapes to make this honeyed, crisp lemon white.
Michel Chapoutier is renowned for his exceptional Rhône wines, but this region alone couldn’t contain his brilliance. Since he took over the family estate in 1990, he has also acquired sites in Languedoc, Roussillon, Provence, Alsace – and far afield in Oregon, Australia’s Heathcote and Portugal. Domaine de Bila-Haut is his prize in the Roussillon’s Latour de France. Its rugged slopes include soils of gneiss, schist, chalk and limestone, lending richness, depth, power and finesse. This white is made from Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Macabeu, with a little this vintage of Marsanne, Viognier and Roussanne for a more aromatic style. Pure, unoaked and with white peach fruit, it pairs well with trout or chicken, but is great solo, too.
"I liked the balance of the minerality with the fruitiness. Could drink quite a bit of this"
