M. Chapoutier Côtes du Rhône Belleruche 2019
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
Deep garnet red. Nose is intense, fruity (blackcurrant/ raspberry) and complemented by notes of white pepper. This wine is juicy, powerful and fruity (red fruits notes) on the palate, with lovely roasted notes. There are silky and delicate tannins. Recommended food pairing: young milk-fed lamb.
Always a good value, the 2019 Côtes Du Rhône Belleruche is ideal for readers looking for a terrific house red that won't break the bank. Revealing a purple/ruby hue as well classic peppery Provençal aromas and flavors, it's medium-bodied and has a solid spine of acidity, moderate tannins, and a crisp, clean finish. Enjoy bottles over the coming 2-3 years.
