M. CHAPOUTIER - Domaine DE BILA-HAUT Cotes du Roussillon Villages "R.I Rectificando Invenies" 2009
Wine Region: Languedoc-Roussillon - France Grape: Syrah
Tasting notes: The nose is complex and intense; graphite with notes of ink, raspberry and cistus flower. The wine is delicate on entry, growing steadily denser, without aggressiveness, lovely tight tannins. Firm, long lingering, finish; superb violet and white pepper olfactory after-taste.
