M. Chapoutier Bila-Haut Occultum Lapidem Côtes-du-Roussillon Villages Latour de France AOP

It was in Latour de France that M.Chapoutier chose to set up his domain. The vines of Bila-Haut and Occultum Lapidem were the first expressions of this terroir. The story continued near a little village called Lesquerde. Steep, craggy limestone, arid soil, battered by the tramontane wind…

The vineyard is located on Gneiss and schistous soils from the Devonian Period and limestone from Kimmeridgian Period.
