« One of the more polished, sexy examples of the cuvee, the 2015 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem checks in as a blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and the balance Carignan and Mourvèdre, aged all in concrete tanks. It boasts killer notes of black raspberries, cassis, pepper and licorice, with just a hint of chocolate appearing with time in the glass. This medium to full-bodied, layered and beautifully textured red is an incredible value and will be impossible to resist over the coming 4-5 years, and I’m sure it will keep even longer. » (Wine Advocate 2017 - Robert Parker)

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2017) : 15,5/20 (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2020) : 1*Star (A reliable production, recommendable, in line with expectations from the appellation(s))

About this wine : « Nez de syrah aussi renfrognée que concentrée, bouche puissante sur des notes de liqueur de cerise, pureté de saveurs, extrême densité, un vin sec à accorder sur du chocolat ! »

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.

Wine rated (guide 2017) : 94/100 (Vin formidable)
Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : « Parmi les cuvées les plus raffinées et les plus sexy, le Côtes du Roussillon Villages Occultum Lapidem 2015 affiche un assemblage de 50% de Syrah, 40% de Grenache et le reste Carignan et Mourvèdre. Il dévoile des notes de framboises noires, de cassis, de poivre et de réglisse, avec juste un soupçon de chocolat apparaissant plus tard dans le verre. Ce vin mi-corsé à corsé joliment texturé est une valeur incroyable auquel il sera bien difficile de résister au cours des 4 à 5 prochaines années, et pendant bien plus longtemps j’en suis sûr. »

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.

Vraiment très sympa, puissant avec ses 15,5°, mais c’est tellement bien fait, sur les fruits noirs confits, qu’on ne les sent pas du tout. Je recommande ce beau vin à l’excellent rapport qualité/prix.
