2018 DOMAINE DE BILA HAUT Occultum Lapidem 75cl (Languedoc, France)
Style - Bold
Grapes - Syrah, Grenache, Carignan
Tasting - Fans of Cote Rotie/Hermitage pay attention! Grilled meat, black olive and bacon scents intertwine with pepper and blackberry. An all-in flavour bomb set to detonate on your tongue.
FYI: "My opinion is that Roussillon is like the Northern Rhône in Languedoc-Roussillon," says Michel Chapoutier. He's not kidding, this is just like Côte Rôtie at half the price.
