rated this wine as 91/100
with the following review:
Licorice, black cherries and currants. Graphite/minerality (pencil shavings), also a potassium note with baking spices. A truly remarkable wine for $20. Everything Chapoutier touches seems to turn to gold. 91 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Domaine De Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem, M. Chapoutier 2006, A.C. Côtes du Roussillon-Villages, Midi, France: Vintages Wine Panel: Garrigue is the fragrance of lavender, rosemary, sage, thyme and lemon verbena—the scent that pervades the air of the Midi and Provence and is sometimes expressed in the aromas and flavors of its better wines. My note: Michel Chapoutier is more famous for his Rhone wines but this one from southern France is terrific. Beautifully concentrated with extracted black cherry liqueur aromas followed by smoke and anise that make this a tasty number. Love the Braille label. 643239 14% XD 750 mL $19.95 Score: 90/100.
