Wonderful bouquet and smooth finish with lingering delicious aftertaste! A steal at this price point and can easily go for twice the price
I think Wine Advocate got it right on the nose with the 92 point score. For under $20 this wine has great potential and well worth the money. Recommended.

The 2009 M. Chapoutier Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour Domaine de Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem brings an old-world and rustic style with notes of ripe dark berries, wet loamy earth, underbrush, herbs, and even some spicy popurri florals, This really brings out the terrior with nice a fleshy character and coats your palate with beautiful fine silky structure. Everything finishes up really soft and fresh. If you are having roasted meats pull the cork on this for a great pairing. (Drink 2012-2017)
