The 2015 Bila-Haut Rosé, Les Vignes de Pays, d’Oc Indication Géographique Protégee is deserving of its own ode… Delicious every day, with or without the rhyming, it’s poetry in crystal.

Domaine de Bila-Haut, Roussillon on the Rise, Rhône Leader Michel Chapoutier’s “Bila Heights” believes that “Roussillon has the potential to be as great as Bordeaux, Burgundy or the Rhône.”


Ode to Bila-Haut

Oh, Bila-Haut, you are such a delicious Rosé!

What joy you bring to every glass

Each sip I taste has such delicate class…

I open the bottle and shout hooray!

Strawberry compote has nothing on you

Drops of strawberry and honeydew…

Like my Aunt Edit’s vase of Cloisonné!

You bring back such a great reflection

of my last sip’s inspection…

Nothing’s changed, I’m happy to say!

Only the vintage

and the work of the label artist…

2015 Bila-Haut Rosé

Your label is written in braille.

This makes for such a caring tale…

Bila-Haut Rosé, Les Vignes de Pays

d’Oc Indication Géographique Protégee.

Again, I shout hooray!
