Grapes: Grenache Blanc / Grenache Gris / Macabeu
Roussillon, a land of legend and history. A place of contrasts, too, much as Domaine de Bila-Haut. Elegant citrus aromas and smoky notes. Great freshness is brought by a blend of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Macabeu; grape varieties with a strong identity for a perfect match of food and wine.
The 2012 Côtes du Roussillon Les Vignes de Bila-Haut beautifully illustrates the ability of Roussillon whites to convey vivacity, juiciness and invigoration at relatively low acidity, with the help of the best growers and sites. Peach fuzz, lime zest, mint, fennel and white pepper with an underlying minerality all envelop the palate in luscious pineapple and peach fruit with a complex and vibrant finish.
The Wine Advocate: 92 points.
