91 pts Wine Review - @Chapoutier Les Vignes De Bila-Haut 2016
Côtes Du Roussillon Villages, Midi A.C., France
Amazing value for this silky, aromatic and tangy Syrah-Grenache blend from Michel Chapoutier. There's 10% Carignan, too, to kick things up a notch. Chapoutier wines are loved for their aromatics and fine texture and this one doesn't disappoint, even at this price. Lots of dark berries, plums, spice and dried herbs on nose and palate. Well-structured and a pleasure to drink, this is a very sensuous, flavourful wine from first to last sip. It was the perfect accompaniment to grilled fennel sausages and sweet potato wedges. Highly recommended. 91 pts.
