These Chapoutier wines are sometimes reviewed by my colleagues David Schildknect in his Languedoc-Roussillon report and Lisa Perrotti-Brown in her reviews of Australian wines so I will just list the wines my score and the region from which they emerge. They are of very high quality and deserve readers' attention. Hopefully my prose has convinced more than a handful of readers to try these remarkable wines from one of the most fascinating and compelling personalities in the entire wine world and one dedicated to the highest quality.

A fantastic value Chapoutier's 2010 Les Vignes de Bila-Haut is a completely destemmed blend of Syrah Grenache and Carignan that's aged all in vat. It displays an upfront perfumed and supple array of earthy wild berry fruit garrigue saddle leather lavender and hints of minerality that leads to a medium to full-bodied supple and beautifully balanced palate. It has no hard edges possesses a seamless silky texture and a gulpable hedonistic profile that is hard to resist. This knockout value should be purchased by the case and consumed over the coming 3-4 years.

This is very expressive with wonderful notes of crushed violets mixed with blackberry kirsch and fresh cracked black pepper. On entry ripe blackberry and plum are complemented by savory notes of Provencal herbs and black pepper supported with persistent fine-grained tannins and vibrant acidity. This is reminiscent of classic Rhone - great right out of the bottle but it improves with air into an almost creamy texture all the while maintaining its buoyancy and liveliness. Incredible value for price point - downright delicious. Enjoy now and through 2017+.
