"Any project Michel Chapoutier is involved with seems to excel, and his Roussillon Bila Haut domaine is no exception" - Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate)

Michel Chapoutier is one of the wine world's great characters and winemaking visionaries. Whilst his fame is derived primarily from his incredible Hermitages, he also has the magic touch of finding incredible vineyard sites across France and the rest of the world and one of the very best of these is his extraordinary Cotes-du-Roussillon Villages Occultum Lapidem, from Domaine de Bila Haut.
Always exceptional value, when it's good, it's really, properly good and the 2013 is great, being awarded 94 points from the Wine Advocate's Rhone-meister Jeb Dunnuck.
This wine is utterly seductive, luscious and rich but with a mineral edge that provides a magical lightness of touch and at the price is incredible value.
And what great value it is! Be quick. Free shipping on case lots.

If you are looking for a high quality everyday drinker this is it!

Occultum Lapidem Label Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate: 
Slightly more ripe, voluptuous and textured than the more Syrah-dominated l'Esquerda, the translucent purple-colored 2013 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem comes from the schist soils around the village of Latour de France. A blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 10% Carignan that was harvest on September 15 and aged all in concrete tanks, it's a fabulous wine that offers elegant notes of red and black raspberries, roasted herbs, pepper, melted licorice and asphalt. These flow to a medium to full-bodied 2013 that has a full, layered mid-palate, beautiful fruit, fine tannin and a classically focused, dry finish. It continues to freshen up in the glass, has integrated acidity and lots of class. Buy this brilliant wine by the case and drink it over the coming decade

What's in a name? "Occultum Lapidem" is Latin for "hidden gem" or "hidden stone" and refers to the Bila-Haut estate's oldest vineyards, where vines exceed 50 years of age and produce concentrated, powerful grapes.  The words are part of an expression by Christian Rosenkreuz, an alchemist who founded the mysterious philosophical secret society the Rosicrucian Order in the 13th or 14th century. Great wine is made in the Interior Parts of the Earth, as they say.
