Michel Chapoutier is the master of Northern Rhone wines. Here, he has turned his hand to the wines of Roussillon where he owns the Domaine of Bila-Haut. The white is made from vines grown at around 500 metres elevation in the Agly valley. Grenache Blanc is the dominant variety, which brings a stoned fruit richness and creaminess, supported by Macabeu, Roussanne, and Marsanne. This is a delicious expression of Mediterranean white wine with notes of citrus oil, wild herbs, and minerality. Superb value for money.

Languedoc Roussillon

Languedoc Roussillon

Languedoc Roussillon is France's largest producing wine region. A tad smaller than Bordeaux but it is more productive. In this region you will find a myriad of wine styles. Its proximity to the Mediterranean, also covering some regions nestled up against the Pyrenees, means that many grape varieties thrive here, from the well-known internationals to, what we think are more interesting, the local Southern French varieties, such as Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault etc.

The same applies for whites, being more successful when local varieties such as Vermentino, Grenache Blanc, Viognier are used.
