Impenetrable inky black core with a very deep dark purple black hue. Lifted aromas of black raspberries, liquorice and pen ink intermix with notions of graphite, fresh herbs and pepper. Full bodied, rich and powerful with a ripe chewy textural feel, the palate is engulfed with black cherry, liquorice and black raspberry flavours. Also present are notions of graphite, black olive, scorched earth and black pepper. Very stern in its structure with dry, firmly built tannins and bright acidity providing some muscle to counterpoint the opulent black fruits. Excellent power with a long chewy black cherry, black raspberry, liquorice, graphite, scorched earth and pepper aftertaste.
Cellar 5-6 years.
Deep ruby-colored, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem checks in as a blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and 5% each of Carignan and Mourvèdre. It's one of the finest vintages to date for the cuvée and offers fabulous blackberry, currants, crushed rocks, and violets. Deep, rich, voluptuous and sexy, with an incredible texture, it's a screaming value to drink over the coming decade. It's just another brilliant wine from the Roussillon team at Chapoutier. Drink 2018-2024.
