les Vignes de Bila-Haut RED, Cotes-du-Roussillon 2016
I worked at Bila-Haut as the cellar manager back in 2007 and fell in love with the Roussillon region and its wild and ancient vineyards, tanned by the sun and refreshed by the “Tramontane” wind and spellbinding views out over the Mediterranean, while the snowcapped peaks of the Pyrennees sparkled on the southern horizon. A true winemaking paradise with very reasonable wine prices due to the area’s wild obscurity and passionately independent people. This wine is ripe and earthy, medium to full-bodied, with excellent basic structure. It is an authentic expression of this wild part of French Catalonia.
Drink now to 2025. Screw cap.
