M.Chapoutier Bila-Haut Banyuls
£16.99
Garnet red in colour with a powerful, balanced nose skipping between black fruits and stewed fruits subtly underpinned by cocoa. The mouth has a sumptuous balance between the solar strength of the wine and the fineness of its tannins. It has a great persistency with sweetness which develops greedily.

Description

Details

Michel Chapoutier started his love-affair with wine at 26. A self-taught enthusiast and a curious visionary he brings to the winery a new approach and a powerful ambition. An idea of wine that soon became all-embracing. “Wine-grower, wine-maker and wine lover”. The choices he made marked a break with past principles and prejudices. A question of audacity and conviction, convictions he shares with his young team. An essential, emblematic choice too: he decided to change the taste associated with Maison M. Chapoutier, to avoid cultivating “a signature taste”, focusing instead on bringing out the difference and specific features of each terroir.

Spread out on narrow and steep terraces, the Banyuls Appellation overhangs the Mediterranean Sea.

Vineyards
The slopes are situated on schisty soils coming from the Primary Era.

Vinification
The crop is hand-harvested when grapes are very ripe. The grapes are destemmed and crushed. The maceration is long with an addition of alcohol to favour the extraction of aromas and tannins. The wine is aged in vats from 16 to 20 months.

Tasting Notes
Garnet red in colour with a powerful, balanced nose skipping between black fruits and stewed fruits subtly underpinned by cocoa. The mouth has a sumptuous balance between the solar strength of the wine and the fineness of its tannins. It has a great persistency with sweetness which develops greedily.
