Chapoutier is well known in the Rhone Valley for producing some of the best wines in the entire region year after year. Robert Parker said "Michel Chapoutier is one of the best winemakers on the planet." This wine offers an exceptional everyday option and an entry point into the Chapoutier portfolio and the celebrated appellation of Côtes-du-Rhône. A blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah sourced from vineyards in four sub-regions; Drôme, Vaucluse, Gard and Ardèche, each on different soils, giving this Belleruche an extraordinary richness and complexity. Grapes are 100% destemmed and maceration lasts up to 15 days. The ages in tanks where the tannins soften and the flavors build. Wine Spectator said abiut this "Fresh plum and cherry fruit is lined with lightly dusty tannins and pretty lavender and violet hints. Offers an open-knit, pure finish. Drink now."
