A complex and balanced Côtes du Roussillon red wine

The estate

Established since 1808 in Tain-L'Hermitage, M. Chapoutier is an elite reference among fine Rhône Valley wines today.

Winemaker and wine merchant, Michel Chapoutier has successfully brought this family-owned business to the very top. The wines by Maison Chapoutier are renowned by the finest connoisseurs from all around the world for their refinement and high quality. A man of many talents, Michel Chapoutier holds the world record for 100/100 scores awarded by the American critic, Robert Parker. Mathilde, Michel Chapoutier's daughter, has taken over the running of this iconic house, which has over 350 hectares of vineyards in the most prestigious appellations of the northern and southern Rhône Valley region.

Over the years, Maison Chapoutier has developed its know-how in the vineyards of Alsace, Roussillon and Australia.

The vineyard

Bila-Haut V.I.T. 2021 by M. Chapoutier is a Roussillon wine that stems from vines planted on clay-limestone and schist soils.

The vintage

Despite mild temperatures, the winter was marked by some episodes of frost in January and February. The coolness that persisted until the end of spring gave way to a summer that was the coolest recorded in the last five years and without any heatwaves. These weather conditions led to a late ripening period. The grapes were harvested two weeks later than in 2020 and resulted in a tannic, fruity and mineral vintage.

The tasting

Nose

The nose seduces with its perfect balance between the freshness, the tannic structure of the Syrah variety and the smoothness of the Grenache varietal.

Palate

The palate is long and persistent, with fruity (Morello cherry, red fruit) and spicy aromas, notes of garrigue scrubs and racy tannins.
