Intro to Occultum Lapidem Blanc Cotes du Roussillon –
Occultum Lapidem Blanc Cotes du Roussillon is a delicate aromatic wine with a lovely mouthfilling texture.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Occultum Lapidem Blanc Cotes du Roussillon is full of stone fruit aromas of apricot and peach with a floral touch and a delicate roasted note, the palate is fresh and full of minerality. It is a well-balanced wine thanks to the freshness and ripeness of the White Grenache.
The grapes mainly come from the area of Latour de France in the Languedoc, which is composed of gneiss soils. Once the grapes are in the winery they are pressed and then allowed to settle at cool temperatures at 10°C. Fermentation is then carried out at 18°C mainly (70%) in stainless steel vats and the rest (30%) in “demi-muids” (600L barrels). No malolactic fermentation takes place to retain the natural freshness.
This year, it was the climate and its extremes that gave an incredible and very surprising vintage. It was a year in which the elegance and balance of the wines and the softness of the tannins contrasted with a growing season of
extreme weather phenomena and an exceptionally small harvest in the south.
The producer –
M.CHAPOUTIER range encompasses some of the best appellations in France. The soul of the brand is the Rhône Valley that offers wines from everyday Tradition, through classic ‘Grand Crus’ of Prestige, to select wines of Excellence and experimental wines of Alchemy, all the way to true gems of the region in the Fac & Spera range.
Southern France is represented by a set of discovery wines from Mathilde Chapoutier Sélection together with Domaine de Bila-Haut gems from Roussillon, Provence selection from Château des Ferrages and easy-drinking wines from Marius range.
The comprehensive portfolio is completed by a selection of wines from Alsace and German side of the Rhine valley.
With roots dating back to 1808, M. CHAPOUTIER is one of the oldest companies in the Rhône Valley. Yet, its world renown and the quality of wine can truly be accredited to the arrival of Michel Chapoutier in 1990. His willingness to change the set way, thirst for knowledge and open-mindedness, together with his drive to seek, discover and reflect the full potential of our terroirs, letting the soils express their true character, has put our wines firmly on the wine world map.
