"Started to craft wines in the Roussillon in 2000, Domaine de Bila-Haut has been a natural expansion of Maison Chapoutier and one of our very first terroir cast outside of the Rhone Valley. As always, it's a rich and diversified terroir that attracted us in the region where we strived to reveal the best of its great potential through our wines.
I am very pleased to announce the launch of our domaine de Bila  Haut  in partnership  with  EMW, as the next  step  of  our development in Greater China. We're beyond excited to start this new adventure along with EMW and wish to offer the best from Roussillon for all Chinese wine lovers. Our winemaking philosophy being also strongly inspired by gastronomy, let me wish you the pleasure of enjoying a glass of Bila Haut on your favourite table very soon."

After an extensive research for new terroir in the end of the 1990s, Michel Chapoutier, the famed Northern Rhône producer decided to locate Domaine de Bila-Haut in Côtes du Roussillon. Historically the site was one of the first areas planted for viticulture by the Greek Mariners and has been continuously a wine region known for making top quality wines. Roussillon offers many great opportunities including the ideal vine-growing climate and a rich geological background with incredible soil diversity ranging. The Roussillon was bound to attract Michel Chapoutier’s attention.

The Domaine comprises 75 hectares of land cultivated, and is characterized by steep pebbly slopes rising from almost 150 meters above sea level. 40+ year old vines are carefully and meticulously managed by an experienced team of viticulturalists, where sustainable farming and low yields combine to create the highest quality fruit. Domaine de Bila-Haut has gained world’s wine critics’ attention and international  reputation since its presence. Les Vignes de BILA-HAUT Red has been chosen twice among Top 100 List by Wine Spectator in 2010 and in 2016.


"There are very few bad terriors, although there are many terriors that are misunderstood."  — Michel Chapoutier


Domaine de Bila-Haut is the only Roussillon winery which has been selected twice in Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of the Year.

We’re looking forward to share with our clients the magnificent wines from this Chablis specialist of nearly 100 years."

Edouard Duval, EMW Fine Wines CEO

La Chablisienne always wants to go much further and create a style of its own. In a true pioneer spirit, La Chablisienne has never ceased to confront a wide range of challenges in areas as diverse as winegrowing or winemaking.
We are very proud to encourage our producers to move to sustainable methods of production. Working the soils is a priority, as the plant itself, its selection and quality. It is the meticulous work of all those members that creates wines which constantly improve. We are delighted to join EMW portfolio and benefit from their expertise and dynamism on Greater China market to develop La Chablisienne wines sales."

Rodrigue Le Bouedec, Commercial Director, La Chablisienne

 

 La Chablisienne

La Chablisienne, Burgundy, France


Chablis, half way between Paris and Beaune, forms the real gateway to Burgundy ’s treasure-house of wines. Since 1923 at Chablis in Burgundy, the meticulous care of the vine- growers working together under the banner of La Chablisienne has given birth to wines whose magnificence is amplified by the passage of time. These wines, coming from a mosaic of "climats", or vineyard plots, provide a pallet of emotions marked with a truly mineral touch

The winery groups nearly 300 winegrowers to produce the great white wines of Chablis. These wines reflect the utmost care the winegrowers devote to the cultivation of their vineyards and the commitment the winemakers bring to revealing the heart and soul of the wines. It is this subtle harmony between the grower in the vineyards, the technical advisor and the winemaker, which bestows on wines their much sought- after distinction.

EMW Fine Wines is delighted to announce the partnership with Lima Mayer as the exclusive distributor in Mainland China, Hong Kong and Macau.

Lima Mayer
Alentejo, Portugal

 

Lima Mayer is a family project driven by passion with great dedication to make the best quality wine. The wines are produced at Quinta de São Sebastião in Monforte, which was one of the most traditional and prestigious agricultural houses of the Alto Alentejo.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Alicante Boushet and Aragonez, a magnificent selection of the best varieties from Iberia and France are planted in distinct blocks in accordance with variations in the slope.


The coarseness of the soils, the scarcity of water and the range of temperature between day and night all reduce the yield per hectare; but nature gives in compensation and increases the quality of the fruit, with intense aromas and tastes so fundamental to the production of good wine.
