M Chapoutier's Les Vignes de Bila-Haut
New Releases from the leading Rhone producer's vineyards in Roussillon
M Chapoutier has its roots in the Rhone Valley dating back to 1808, but its reputation excellence begins with the arrival of Michel Chapoutier in 1990. Chapoutier converted all the domaine's vineyards to biodynamics and attracted huge attention from the press, his greatest advocate being Robert Parker. Not willing to rest on his laurels, Chapoutier has set about acquiring new vineyards, expanding beyond his home turf in the Rhone valley: Heathcote in Australia, Alsace, and slightly closer to home, Domaine Bila Haut in Roussillon.
Bila Haut produces a number of great wines. We have recently been smitten with their new releases under the label 'Les Vignes de Bila-Haut' which offer quite exceptional value for money, coming in both white and red versions.
