M. Chapoutier Bila Haut Occultum Lapidem 2015


SKU 460



Winemaker Notes :

The Occultum Lapidem displays great dark garnet-red color in the glass. The nose is laden with aromas of black fruits, pepper, leather and graphite with hints of shrubs. On the palate, the fleshy quality of the wine is apparent straightaway from the attack. Rich and dense, the wine finishes with a balance of fruit and delicate tannins.

Blend: 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 5% Carignan, 5%Mourvèdre

Wine SpectatorA generous, medium-bodied white, with pureed peach and cantaloupe fruit, lightly honeyed and edged with herb and vanilla details, all supported by fine acidity. Spice and mineral notes echo on the long finish. Grenache Blanc and Vermentino. Drink now through 2019. 250 cases made.
