Winemaker's Notes

This blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah is a garnet red color. On the nose, there are red fruit aromas, mainly Morello cherries. In the mouth: well-structured, with sustained tannins. Recommended with all grilled or roast meats.

The vineyards of the red Côtes du Rhône Belleruche extend over the "communes" of Sablet and Séguret, on a silty and stony subsoil.

Critical Acclaim

"Pulsating, penetrating and pure. The three Ps that guarantee quality are all on display, and the ripe fruit, chocolate and roasted plum flavors work wonders for what is, by all accounts, normally a standard-fare Côtes du Rhône. What bumps this up a couple of notches is the abundance of cola, raspberry and tannin, as well as some oak that props it up."
