Wine Details

Occultum Lapidem Rouge 2017

AOP Côtes-du-Roussillon Villages Latour de France

This wine is dominant of graphitic, leather notes with intense aromas of pepper & black fruits. It is rich and dense on the palate with delicate tannins and a great freshness.

Vineyards

The vineyard is located on Gneiss and schistose soils from the Devonian Period and limestone from Kimmeridgian Period.

Vintage

This year, it was the climate and its extremes that gave us an incredible and very surprising vintage. 2017 was a year in which the elegance and balance of the wines and the softness of the tannins contrasted with a growing season of extreme weather phenomena and an exceptionally small harvest in the south.

Winemaking

  • Grilled and Roasted Red Meats
