In addition to the Rhone wines for which he is famous, Michel Chapoutier has other projects. Bila Haut is a property he owns in Roussillon. We carry the Occultum Lapidem, but it also produces this rosé from Grenache and Cinsault grapes. The Cinsault gives red fruit and floral aromas, while the Grenache supplies crisp mineral flavors and a hint of citrus on the lingering finish. Although most of Roussillon is a bit warmer than Provence and the wines can lack a certain freshness, this is clearly the exception. It is round and elegant with beautiful balance.
