« Another terrific vintage for this cuvee, the Syrah and Grenache-dominated 2014 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem was harvested between the 12th of September and the 3rd of October with miniscule yields of 28 hectoliters per hectare. Completely destemmed and aged all in concrete tanks, its ruby opaque color is followed by complex notes of garrigue, leather, plums and violets. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and layered, with a great texture, this fruit-forward, balanced Roussillon is already hard to resist, but will continue drinking nicely for 6-7 years. » (Wine Advocate 2016 - Robert Parker)

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 92/100 (Vin formidable)
Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Un peu difficile à déchiffrer à cet instant, avec quelques notes de réduction (ce qui peut être bon signe), Occultum Lapidem 2014 présente une pureté et une fraîcheur extraordinaire, le tout dans un bouquet de framboises noires, de mûres, de poivre et de minéraux. Charpenté, élégant et frais, avec une très belle tension et une accroche tannique en finale, c'est encore une superbe millésime pour cette cuvée.

About the vineyard : L'avant-poste de Michel Chapoutier dans le Roussillon est un prolongement digne de ses opérations dans la vallée du Rhône. L'accent est mis sur les mêmes variétés - Grenache et Syrah, dans des proportions variables selon les terroirs - et la qualité générale est très bonne, les sélections parcellaires étant particulièrement remarquables pour leur excellence et leurs volumes de production limités. "Mon opinion est que Roussillon est comme le Rhône septentrional dans le Languedoc-Roussillon", a déclaré Chapoutier lors de notre dégustation de février dans le petit village de Latour-de-France. Lui et le reste de son équipe sont très optimistes quant aux perspectives des années 2017 et 2018, qu'ils qualifient d'excellents millésimes. Il est à noter que si Chapoutier produit principalement des vins secs en Roussillon, il n’a pas abandonné les styles traditionnels.

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 2**Stars (A reliable production but a little more constant and homogeneous than the previous one)
