Rating : Robert Parker 93-95/100
« A cuvee where the quality has increased in just about every vintage, the 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde l’Esquerda (60/40 Syrah and Grenache) sports a purple/blue color, as well as terrific granite character and minerality in its darker fruits, violets and spring flower-scented bouquet. Full-bodied, focused, concentrated and balanced, it has a pure, precise style that will evolve nicely for a decade ago. Like with a number of other cuvees, this 2015 is easily the best yet. » (Wine Advocate 2016 - Robert Parker)

Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Dévoilant une couleur pourpre profonde - presque bleue, le Côtes du Roussillon Villages l'Esquerde 2016 présente une minéralité dans le style des Rhône Nord ainsi que des notes classiques de fruits noirs et bleus, de fleurs écrasées, d'ozone et de réglisse. Assemblage de Syrah et de Grenache, plantés sur des sols de granit, c'est un rouge riche, structuré, charpenté et capable de vieillir qui s'appréciera jusqu'en 2026.

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 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.
