Wine Profile

Tasting Notes The wine is initially quiet and reserved, with light blackberry paste and black cherry tones that are spiced with hints of dark chocolate, licorice & turned earth. The palate boasts a firm, tannic structure and bright acidity, with flavours of tobacco, chocolate, black plum & blackberry.
Ratings A step up and an incredible effort, the 2013 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem is made from a mix of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan that comes from schist and chalky soils. A serious, classically styled effort, it offers awesome aromas and flavors (blackberry, mineral and licorice), full-bodied richness and fabulous concentration that never comes across as heavy or cumbersome. Showing additional minerality and definition with time in the glass, this beauty will have 10-15 years of longevity and should not be missed. Any project Michel Chapoutier is involved with seems to excel, and his Roussillon Bila Haut domaine is no exception.
