The 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde l'Esquerda sports and a vibrant purple colour as well as classic Syrah notes of black raspberries, blackberries, crushed flowers and violets. Fresh, focused and really showing a terrific granite character, this classy beauty has a core of sweet fruit and is a northern Rhône with a kiss of Roussillon sunshine and warmth.
93-95/100 Jeb Dunnuck, robertparker.com, April 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"A cuvee where the quality has increased in just about every vintage, the 2015 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Lesquerde l’Esquerda (60/40 Syrah and Grenache) sports a purple/blue colour, as well as terrific granite character and minerality in its darker fruits, violets and spring flower-scented bouquet. Full-bodied, focused, concentrated and balanced, it has a pure, precise style that will evolve nicely for a decade ago. Like with a number of other cuvees, this 2015 is easily the best yet.

I continue to be blown away by the quality coming from Domaine de la Bila Haut, which is run with the Chapoutier team. They’ve continued to grow these Roussillon releases, and even at the entry-level price point, the quality is stunning. The straight Les Vignes de Bila Haut, is a no-brainer purchase, and it’s made in enough quantity that readers should have no problem finding a bottle or more. The quality of the l’Esquerda continues to improve and I think the 2015 will be the best vintage of this cuvee to date. The top single parcel bottles of RI and VIT are made in tiny quantities, but these are up with the finest wines coming from the south of France. In short, these are fabulous wines that show classic characters (most are aged all in concrete) and represent incredible values. Don’t miss them. Drink: 2016-2026."
