Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
One of the more polished, sexy examples of the cuvee, the 2015 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Occultum Lapidem checks in as a blend of 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache and the balance Carignan and Mourvèdre, aged all in concrete tanks. It boasts killer notes of black raspberries, cassis, pepper and licorice, with just a hint of chocolate appearing with time in the glass. This medium to full-bodied, layered and beautifully textured red is an incredible value and will be impossible to resist over the coming 4-5 years, and I’m sure it will keep even longer.

Wine Spectator
Red plum and dried red berry flavors show underpinnings of dark chocolate and spice in this meaty red. Hints of black tea, olive and mineral linger into the tangy, tannic finish. Drink now through 2023.

Winemaker Notes

The Occultum Lapidem displays great dark garnet-red color in the glass. The nose is laden with aromas of black fruits, pepper, leather and graphite with hints of shrubs. On the palate, the fleshy quality of the wine is apparent straightaway from the attack. Rich and dense, the wine finishes with a balance of fruit and delicate tannins.

Blend: 50% Syrah, 40% Grenache, 5% Carignan, 5%Mourvèdre
