WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "The 2012 Cotes du Roussillon Les Vignes de Bila-Haut – representing, as usual, tank-raised Grenache Blanc, Macabeu, and Read More...
Grenache Gris, some from chalky soils around Latour-de-France, but largely from granite heights in Lesquerde – beautifully illustrates not just the ability of Roussillon whites to convey vivacity, juiciness and invigoration at relatively low acidity, but also the ability of the best growers and sites to render gorgeous whites despite the challenges of the 2012 vintage. More than that, it offers incomprehensible value! Peach fuzz, lime zest, mint, fennel white pepper, salt, alkalinity, and an ineffable and uncanny sense of crystalline mineral impingement all keep this juicy cuvee invigorating as well as intriguing, and it manages to at once envelope the palate in luscious pineapple and peach fruit while at the same time broadcasting shimmering, vibratory interactivity into a finish notable not just for its vibrancy and complexity but also its sheer refreshment. (Unfortunately, the 2011 rendition was omitted from the line-up I tasted in the spring because not a bottle was to be found at the winery and I subsequently did not have chance to track-down one.)"

This fantastic French white from M. Chapoutier is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Macabeu. A part of the grapes come from limestone and clay soils in the Agly Valley; the other part from granite soils at higher altitude (500m, later ripening sites). The grapes were hand-harvested, after pressing, the must is cold-settled. Vinification is performed in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Ageing lasts a few months in order to keep all the freshness and enhance the minerality. 13% alcohol.

new oak and the majority in tank; and the cuvee La Doriane, which see 100% new oak, and is a cellar selection that comes from a number of estate plots. Both go through full malolactic fermentation, and since 2003, there’s been a stylistic shift to show more freshness and purity (which is a common thread among a number of producers). First off, the 2011 Condrieu is gorgeous. Offering up loads of apricot, buttered citrus, flowers and honeysuckle, it is a classic Condrieu that has a rich, full texture (it sees a touch of extended skin contact), great purity and blockbuster finish." .

Winemaker's notes : "The fresh 2011 summer made a long ripening season, which is the ideal situation to make a good Condrieu. The viognier hates the sun which has the tendency Read More...
to offer a heavy caricature of Condrieu. The real great Condrieu has to be made with nice golden bunches but shouldn’t excess 13,5° in alcohol. The equation is difficult to solve in a hot year like 2003. But in 2011, the slow ripening allowed to harvest at the exact optimum. Then the ageing on the lies brings the volume and the depth. As we don’t really know what the global warming will reserve in the future, let’s appreciate immediately this Condrieu «In Antiquis», the real Condrieu.. It goes very well with truffles or a Roquefort soup."

heavenly stuff! Comprised of 90% Marsanne and 10% Roussanne, this incredible white boasts massive aromatics of white currants, white peach, flowers, licorice, sauteed nuts and brioche, as well as a striking minerality that comes out with additional time in the glass. Coming from the oldest vines in Hermitage, it is a full-bodied, incredibly concentrated effort that builds on the palate and through the finish, yet stays fresh, elegant and lively, without ever being over the top. One of the greatest white wines I was able to taste during my trip through the region, this beauty should either be consumed in the coming 4-6 years, or forgotten for 20."

Hermitage appellation, above the famed lieu-dit for white Hermitage, Les Rocoules. This cuvee is very limited in availability so I’ll keep my notes brief. Aromas of white currants, pepper, quince and apricot marmalade are present in this full-bodied, gorgeously rich, pure, stunning white. Completely locked down at present, it should be forgotten for 8-10 years and drunk over the following two decades. It will unquestionably be a very long-lived white wine."
