PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Michel Chapoutier was the heir apparent of a family winemaking operation in the Rhône dating back to the early 1800s. After making its good vineyards great by lowering yields and employing organic and biodynamic viticultural practices, he set his sights on the Languedoc-Roussillon and purchased vineyard land around the village of Latour, by the Agly river in the foothills of the Pyrénées. The wines he has made under the Bila-Haut name have garnered him numerous accolades from the press as well as legions of ardent fans around the world - not to mention the staff and customers at Bin Ends!


The "L'Esquerda" is a blend of predominently Syrah, with samller amounts of Grenache, and Carignan, sourced from vineyards with Gneiss and schistous soils from the Devonian Period and limestone from the Kimmeridgian Period. This viticulturally rich land has brought forth a layered and complex wine; it was aged in concrete instead of oak so that its gorgeous fruit and terroir-driven characters can take center stage on the palate. The wine is fleshy and generous, with aromas and flavors of blackberries and cassis accented with notes of leather, graphite, black pepper and sagebrush. Supple tannins and balancing acidity make it absolutely crushable. 

94 points, Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from higher elevation granite soils and just about all Syrah, the 2018 Côtes Du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde L'Esquerda offers stunning granite character with its cassis and black raspberry fruit intermixed with lots of wet stone, ground pepper, white flowers, and hints of truffle. Deep, medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure and elegant on the palate, with light tannins, it's going to keep for upwards of a decade." (12/12/19)
