3.8/5 by 4 customers
A blend of Grenache blanc and Vermentino planted on sols of gneiss, Occultum Lapidem reveals intense aromas of stone fruits to go with delicately toasted floral notes. On the palate, the entry is fresh, full of minerality and complexity. There is a good balance between freshness and volume !

Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 1*Star (A reliable production, recommendable, in line with expectations from the appellation(s))

About the vineyard : Michel Chapoutier, personnalité incontournable et prolifique du monde viticole de la vallée du Rhône, a beaucoup investi dans sa propriété de Latour de France (avec plus de 100 hectares de vignes, débordant sur d'autres villages comme Lesquerde, puis quelques parcelles sur la côte vermeille). Égal à lui-même en matière de perfectionnisme, il propose des vins abordables, offrant un bon rapport qualité-prix.

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.
