2017 Domaine de la Bila Haut "Les Vignes de Bila Haut" Côtes du Roussillon Blanc

SKU #1377639 90 points Jeb Dunnuck

 A clean, balanced, crisp white that delivers crushed citrus, mint, and hints of stony minerality, the 2017 Côtes du Roussillon Les Vignes de Bila Haut Blanc is medium-bodied, fresh and lively, with beautiful depth of fruit married to bright acidity and obvious minerality. It's another wine that over-delivers at the price. A blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 20% Macabeau, and the rest Roussanne, Marsanne, and Vermentino, drink it over the coming year or two.  (11/2018)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Bila Haut's entry-level white is a super value. A blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Macabeu, Vermentino and Marsanne, the 2017 Côtes du Roussillon les Vignes de Bila Haut Blanc is plump, round and richly textured in the mouth, yet it's also refreshing, with vibrant flavors of tangerine zest underscored by briny notes on the finish.

K&L Notes

Praise for the producer from critic Jeb Dunnuck: "I continue to be blown away by the quality coming from Domaine de la Bila Haut, which is run with the Chapoutier team. They’ve continued to grow these Roussillon releases, and even at the entry-level price point, the quality is stunning... In short, these are fabulous wines that show classic characters (most are aged all in concrete) and represent incredible values. Don’t miss them."

This typical blend of Roussillon white grapes is bright and briny, with a crisp and slightly phenolic finish which adds interest and balance. In the current line-up of Bila Haut wines we carry, this delicious Grenache Blanc based white is my favorite!

This delightful Cotes du Rousillon Blanc is a great combination of texture, fruit and herbal notes. With a bright, citrus-dominated nose, and a mixture of honeydew, quince and lemongrass on the palate, the wine combines a crisp, fresh acidity with an excellent creamy texture that makes for a fascinating whole.

Other White Wines



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
