Natalie's Score: 90/100

Another terrific southern French wine from the master winemaker Chapoutier. This is a robust white wine blend of 60% Grenache Blanc, 20% Macabeu, 10% Marsanne and the remainder Vermentino grapes. The grapes for the 2015 vintage of the Cotes du Roussillon les Vignes de Bila Haut Blanc were picked from September 1-15 and fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness. Aromas of white peach and orchard fruit. Terrific acidity or seafood. Medium-bodied. Terrific!

Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Buy a case of this wine for the rest of Summer and you will not be disappointed. This wine shows lovely aromas and flavours of stone fruit, pressed white flowers, citrus peel, and a slight hint of quince. A lovely offering that's not trying to over-do it. The mouthwatering acidity has it pairing well with fresh or salt-water fishes or summer salads. 89 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
