*90 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate*
A blend of 60% Grenache Blanc, 20% Macabeu, 10% Marsanne and 10% Vermentino from limestone and clay soils in the Agly Valley, with a smaller parcel from higher altitude sites for freshness. The wine is fermented and aged in stainless steel to retain its freshness and minerality.
A pale yellow colour with green tints. On the nose lemon and grapefruit notes are framed by a distinct smoky note. The palate has a generous round mouthfeel with an elegant freshness. A mineral-laced finish closes the deal. An excellent aperitif or pair with seared tuna steaks. Enjoy now until 2018.
'Possessing fabulous notes of citrus rind, white flowers and distinct minerality, this beauty hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, bright acidity and a mineral-laced finish that keeps you coming back to the glass. It’s a total steal at 14 bucks. I continue to be blown away by the quality coming from Domaine de la Bila Haut, which is run with the Chapoutier team. They’ve continued to grow these Roussillon releases, and even at the entry-level price point, the quality is stunning.' - 90 Points, erobertparker.commore ↓ less ↑
