2017 Domaine de Bila-Haut, Côtes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde "R.I.", 6x750ml OWCs
Regular price $4,080.00
- "Rectificando Invenies" - a "purifying discovery".
- 100% Syrah.
- Aging lasts around 18 months: the first year in demi-muids (600 l) barrels of one wine then the last six months in concrete tanks
"The Syrah-based 2017 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde Rectificando Invenies features stunning blueberry and cassis fruit. Accented by hints of crushed stone and peppery spice, it's full-bodied, supple and rich, with a long, velvety finish. It should be capable of challenging some of Chapoutier's Hermitage bottlings for sheer pleasure, even if I don't think it will be as long-lived."
94-96/100 Joe Czerwinski for The Wine Advocate/Robertparker.com.
- Available in 6 bottle OWCs.
