'A step up in price and based mostly on Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris, the 2018 Côtes Du Roussillon Occultum Lapidem Blanc gives up a ripe, mineral-laced style carrying lots of apple blossom and citrus fruits as well as medium to full-bodied richness, hints of spice and white flower, a rounded, layered texture, and beautiful balance. It's a richer white, yet it has bright acidity and a clean, crisp finish. Beautifully done, it should keep for at least 2-4 years, if not longer.' – Jeb Dunnuck, 92/100

'The 2018 Côtes du Roussillon Occultum Lapidem Blanc comes across as powerful but slightly blunt and blocky, needing a bit of time to relax and unwind. It's rich, dense and long, with intense flavors of honey, lime zest and brine. 2020-2023.' – Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate, 90-92/100

Producer information Michel Chapoutier is the ultimate overachiever. Not only do his thrilling single-vineyard wines set the benchmark for the entire Rhône Valley, but he also produces some of the best value wines on the planet. With a 200-year history, wines from all corners of the Rhône and supreme quality throughout, Michel Chapoutier is the king of the Rhône Valley. Organic and biodynamic farming principles, together with traditional winemaking in top appellations, produce structured wines with long ageing potential. The wines tend to be generous, but each one speaks of its terroir and shows immaculate balance.
