Chapoutier ‘Belleruche’ Cotes du Rhone 2016

Blended Red from France - Rhone
Review Date : 18-Dec-2017
Full, dark, deep black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is full and softly-packed with deep, dense and up-front aromas of earthy dark raspberry fruit entwined with garrigue herbs. Medium-full bodied, the palate has bright, sweetly rich, lusciously juicy flavours dark raspberry fruit with subtle notes of herbs and earth. The palate unfolds soft pepper and spice notes adding savoury interest. The mouthfeel has light, grainy textures and moderate extraction, lending good body and structure with balanced acidity. The wine carries to a long, lingering juicy finish of dark raspberries, earth and herbs. This is an up-front, bright and juicy Cotes du Rhone with dark raspberries, herbs and earth on a grainy-textured palate. Match with barbecued and roasdted red meat dishes over the next 4-5+ years. Primarily Grenache and Syrah fruit, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0$ alc., the wine spending 15 days on skins and aged in vat. 17.5+/20 Dec 2017 RRP $25.99
