Occultum Lapidem, Michel Chapoutier:


We have a real bargain for you here... Ever since our BI team visit to the Rhone we have been huge converts to the wines of Michel Chapoutier – one of the wine world’s great characters and true winemaking visionaries. Whilst his fame derives primarily from his incredible Hermitages, he also has the magic touch of finding incredible vineyard sites across France and the rest of the world and one of the very best of these is his extraordinary Cotes du Roussillon Villages Occultum Lapidem, from Domaine de Bila-Haut. Always exceptional value, when it’s good, it’s really, properly good and the 2013 is off-the-charts good. In fact, it’s just been awarded with a princely 94-97 point spread from the Wine Advocate’s Rhone-meister Jeb Dunnuck. Utterly seductive, luscious and rich but with a mineral edge that provides a magical lightness of touch, this completely defies its frankly ridiculous price.

94-97pts JD,“A step up and an incredible effort, the 2013 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem is made from a mix of Syrah, Grenache and Carignan that comes from schist and chalky soils. A serious, classically styled effort, it offers awesome aromas and flavors (blackberry, mineral and licorice), full-bodied richness and fabulous concentration that never comes across as heavy or cumbersome. Showing additional minerality and definition with time in the glass, this beauty will have 10-15 years of longevity and should not be missed. Any project Michel Chapoutier is involved with seems to excel, and his Roussillon Bila Haut domaine is no exception.”
