FRANCE

France benefits from a range of locations and climates that are suitable for growing wines, resulting in a diverse range of varieties and styles. Emphasis remains as much on tradition as technology, with particular significance placed on the expression of terroir. The finest wine-producing regions are Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne and Rhône.

Other significant areas include Alsace, Beaujolais, Chablis, Jura, Loire, and south west France. A predominantly red wine-producing country, less than a quarter of all wine consumed in France is white.

The most widely planted variety is Carignan, with other significant red varieties being Grenache, Merlot, Cinsaut and Cabernet Sauvignon. Ugni Blanc dominates the white grape plantings as the main variety used in the production of Cognac. The other principal white varieties are Chardonnay and Sémillon.

Imagining the sweetness and purity of diverse berry fruits found in the corresponding “L’Esquerda” bottling allied to the saline savor of the corresponding “Vignes de Bila-Haut” will give you an idea of what awaits from the glass of 2011 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem …there is, unsurprisingly, at least as much sheer complexity on display here...

TASTING NOTES

This is a superb wine which jumps out of the glass with vibrant aromas of violets, plums and fresh blueberries. Crushed redcurrant and blueberry fruit characters on the palate are carried through on a wave of velvety elegance towards a soft spiciness of sprinkled white pepper on the finish. This wine has plenty of substance, combined with finesse which makes...

Fresh and lively with floral lift and a sense of orange peel and zest. Crisp, bright and taut with slate-y minerality. Again there is an awful lot here for the money with plenty of depth and a lengthy finish. Above all though this is delicious.

Orange zest and rose petals with a touch of spice. Ripe, complex fruit characteristics: Lychee, peach and pink grapefruit. This is astonishingly long with tremendous complexity.
