680 NEWS wine reviews – October 28–30, 201 

Chapoutier Les Vignes de Bila-Haut Côtes du Roussillon-Villages 2014
Michel Chapoutier is one of the great producers in the Rhone Valley who also makes wine in Australia, Portugal, and China – as well as his neighbouring region of Roussillon. Currently at Vintages is Chapoutier Les Vignes de Bila Haut Côtes du Roussillon-Villages 2014. Deep purple-ruby in colour, it shows a peppery, herbal nose of blackberries and tobacco; it's full-bodied, richly extracted, dry and savoury with a floral uplift on the finish. A real bargain at $15.95 in Vintages outlets. Try it with pepper steak or spicy casseroles. That's Chapoutier Les Vignes de Bila Haut Côtes du Roussillon-Villages 2014 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($15.95, Vintages #168716) (90)

Château du Bois Chantant Cuvée Laurence H. 2012
A year last September I recommended a red Bordeaux at a great price – Château du Bois Chantant Cuvée Laurence H. 2012. The same vintage is now back at Vintages (tomorrow) and selling at the same price of $18.95 – with an added year of bottle age. The wine is dense purple in colour with a nose of blackcurrant, cedar and spicy oak. It's the perfect wine for lamb because, as I mentioned last year, on the day God created sheep He also created the Cabernet Sauvignon grape. That's Château du Bois Chantant Cuvée Laurence H. 2012 from France at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($18.95, Vintages #421206) (89)
