M. Chapoutier COTE DU RHONE BELLERUCHE ROSE 2021
|France, Loire Valley, Cotes du Rhone
Belleruche translates to “beautiful beehive” in French, a name which takes inspiration from the bees and hives that thrive in the sustainable vineyards of M. Chapoutier.
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. Enjoy with fish, shellfish, and salads. Perfect for picnics with mild creamy cheese and grilled salmon or tuna roasted on an iron skillet.
With roots dating back to 1808, M. CHAPOUTIER is one of the oldest companies in the Rhône Valley. Yet, its world renown and the quality of wine can truly be accredited to the arrival of Michel Chapoutier in 1990. His willingness to change the set way, thirst for knowledge and open-mindedness, together with his drive to seek, discover and reflect the full potential of our terroirs, letting the soils express their true character, has put our wines firmly on the wine world map. This philosophy is what gives our wines their signature style, forms the basis of the M. CHAPOUTIER ethos and drives our team to reveal the very best of what the soils have to offer.
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.
Shimmering orange. Ripe red berry, orange pith and floral aromas are complemented by a subtle nectarine flourish. Smooth and open-knit, offering plump strawberry and tangerine flavors that take on a spicy quality with air. Shows good energy on the finish, which lingers with good, floral-tinged persistence.
Fresh, with a light watermelon rind edge that adds freshness and direction to the light-bodied mix of white cherry and white peach flavors. Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault. Drink now.
