Côtes-du-Rhône Belleruche Blanc 2019 12 x Half Bottles
An expressive wine with aromas of apricot, fennel and floral scents. The wines roundness is a perfect match for its freshness and the finish reveals subtle notes of aniseed.
Planted mainly in stony-marl soils and on clay-limestone slopes, these soils are porous with a steady and regular water supply. They warm up quickly in the spring and help the grapes to reach perfect maturity.
An impressive Rhone vintage, with wines of impeccable balance. High temperatures proved a challenge for growers in the northern Rhone but some rain later in the season allowed for freshness to come through.
Harvest is carried out at night by machine to prevent and limit oxidation of the juices and preserve the aromatic components. Total destemming followed by a light skin maceration particularly for the Viognier, gentle pressing. Cold static settling. Alcoholic fermentation at low temperature in stainless steel vats. The wine is protected from oxygen to preserve its aromatic potential and undergoes 5 months ageing on the fine lees.
