Tasting Notes

Not yet bottled, the 2017 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem checks in as a blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and the balance Carignan and Mourvèdre brought up in tank. Its saturated purple color is followed by a fresh, vibrant bouquet of blackberries, black raspberries, dried earth, lavender, and pepper. It's certainly in the same league as the 2016 and has beautiful purity and elegance married to classic Roussillon richness and depth.
