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)

Wine rated (guide 2017) : 94-96/100 (Vin extraordinaire)
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 : Tous les projets dans lesquels Michel Chapoutier s'implique semblent être des réussites majeures, et son domaine du Roussillon, Bila-Haut, n'est pas une exception. Avec des vignes autour des villages de Latour de France et de Lesquerde, ce domaine produit 5 rouges ; l'entrée de gamme Les Vignes de Bila Haut, qui provient de plusieurs vignobles (et très bon marché) ; le L'Esquerda, principalement de Syrah en altitude, et de sols granitiques autour du village de Lesquerde ; Occultum Lapidem, un assemblage de Syrah, Grenache et Carignan d'autour du village de Latour de France ; et ses deux sélections parcellaires, le VIT de Latour de France et le RI de Lesquerde. Ces derniers se rapprochent de l'excellence de la Syrah, et n'ont pas à rougir face aux meilleures Syrah du Rhône Septentrional ou de Californie. Malheureusement, elles sont produites en quantités minuscules, mais ne perdez pas une chance d'en acheter si vous le pouvez.

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

About the vineyard : Égal à lui-même en matière de perfectionnisme, Michel Chapoutier propose dans le Roussillon des vins abordables, offrant un excellent rapport qualité-prix.
