So any opportunity to sample a bottle of a Chapoutier wine is exciting. And his most recent vintage of his Bila-Haut for $11 shouldn't be missed.
2008 M. Chapoutier Côtes du Roussillon Domaine de Bila-Haut (France, Languedoc Roussillon, Roussillon, Côtes du Roussillon): this wine is a Grenache blend, which is very common in the Rhone.
- Color: slightly transparent edges.
- Nose: raspberry, muted cinnamon and soil.
- Taste: primarily raspberry, but also tempered notes of nitrogen/soil and graphite/lead. Dry, medium tannin. All of the elements are very well integrated. Balanced
I found this wine at the Wine Warehouse, but I'm sure that you can find it at Market Square Liquors too.
