Domaine de Bila-Haut | Roussillon

Domaine de Bila-Haut Vineyards in Roussillon, France

Michel Chapoutier set up Domaine de Bila-Haut in the Latour de France area of Roussillon, utilising a combination of stony soils, rich geology and contoured terraces perfectly suited to the spicy Syrah, fruity Grenache and tannic Carignan grape varieties - key Languedoc-Roussillon varieties – basked in the southern French sun and freshened up by the coastal ‘tramontane’ wind. After several years of reflexion, observation and analysis Chapoutier was able to produce the precious and rare wine'V.I.T' which stands for 'visitare interiore terrae' meaning 'visit the innermost earth' - a part of the mythological motto in finding the philosopher stone, or in Chapoutier's case the search for the best terroir in the Côtes-du-Roussillon. Alongside 'V.I.T' there are also a number of other Sélection Parcellaire (single vineyard selection) wines that are also made at this unique domaine.
