Roussillon wines from contoured terraces with stony soils and rich geology.
The Roussillon area was made for Michel Chapoutier and it was in Latour de France that he set up Domaine de Bila-Haut, on a combination of soils perfectly suited to spicy Syrah, fruity Grenache and tannic Carignan – key Languedoc-Roussillon varieties – basked in the southern French sun and freshened up by the coastal ‘tramontane’ wind. Black and brown schist give the wine the sunny ripeness, gneiss minerality and freshness and limestone and chalk strength and balance.
A number of Sélection Parcellaire (single vineyard selection) wines are also made at this unique domaine.
