M. Chapoutier 'Bila-Haut' Les Vignes Cotes du Rous 2014

While this item isn't currently available:
Wine Advocate 91
" Tasted out of barrel, the 2014 Vignes de Bila Haut is 40% Grenache, 40% Syrah and 20% Carignan that was raised all in tank. It possesses lots of raspberry, violets and peppery herbs to go with a fleshy, pure and elegant feel on the palate. I don't think it will make old bones, but it has terrific purity and it should evolve nicely on its balance. "

" This red is supple and fresh, showing a mix of dark berry, plum, herbal tea and peppery flavors. Lightly grippy tannins frame the licorice- and mineral-accented finish. Drink now through 2018. "

View all from M. Chapoutier
No name is more closely associated with the greatness of the Rhone valley than M. Chapoutier.

The history of the Chapoutier family stretches back to the early nineteenth century when current owner Michel Chapoutier's great-, great-, great-grandfather Marius purchased an estate and some vineyards in the now famous village of Tain l'Hermitage in the Northern Rhône Valley. Marius Chapoutier made history in the region when he became the first grape grower there to vinify his own fruit. Marius had tasted wines other winemakers produced using his fruit and he realized that something was lost in translation, so to speak. He knew that he owned some of the best growing sites in the appellation and he believed -- rightly -- that the grapes grown in his vineyards could produce long-lived world-class wines. In a move unusual at the time, he decided that he should make the wine himself. Not only did the quality of the wines increase greatly, but this move provided the capital to expand the Chapoutiers' already legendary estate.

A visionary and pioneer in biodynamic winemaking, his restless energy and unconditional commitment to quality have produced tremendous success, with the most 90+ point ratings of all Rhône producers and 16 "100 point" rated wines.
