« The 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Les Vignes de Bila Haut Blanc is a blend of 60% Grenache Blanc, 20% Macabeu and then smaller amounts of Marsanne and Vermentino. From a mix of estate terroirs (schistes, clay, limestone and granite), it has racy, vibrant aromas and flavors of lime, salty minerality and white peach. Medium-bodied, seamless and incredibly drinkable, it’s absolutely worth buying. » (Wine Advocate 2017 - Robert Parker)

About this wine : « Le Côtes du Roussillon Les Vignes de Bila Haut Blanc 2016 est un assemblage de 60% de Grenache Blanc, 20% de Macabeu et de plus petites quantités de Marsanne et de Vermentino. Issu d'un mélange de terroirs (schiste, argile, calcaire et granit), il offre des arômes racés et vibrants sur le citron vert et la pêche blanche, avec une minéralité salée. Moyennement corsé, pur et incroyablement attirant, il mérite vraiment d’être acheté. »

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.

Nez très minéral type pierre à fusil. Légèrement sur les fleurs blanches, la pêche blanche, la pomme verte. En bouche belle salinité et jolie équilibre, la finale est vraiment sur la fraîcheur. Un vin doté d’une jolie personnalité et qui sort de l’ordinaire. Jolie bouteille

Plus interessant que le occultus lapidem (rouge) dans la meme gamme de prix. A boire à l’aperitif.
