Chapoutier Belleruche Cote du Rhone

Country: FranceSuggested Food Pairing: Lamb
Since 1991, biodynamics is at the heart M. CHAPOUTIER’s philosophy. The terroir is made up of several major types including pebbly clay soils, soils with layers of stones, stony clay terraces, stony silty-sand… All these soils provide the vine with a constant water supply and, at night, release the heat stored up by the pebbles during the day. After a total destemming, the grapes are vinified in concrete and stainless steel tanks for 3 to 4 weeks. Pumping over operations are carried out each day to gently extract the aromatic components, anthocyanins and tannins. The fermentation temperature is regulated and set at 28°C. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the temperature is allowed to rise to 30-33°C to assist the polymerization of tannins. A beautiful, deep garnet red with intense aromas of raspberry and complemented by notes of white pepper. This wine is juicy, powerful and fruity with lovely roasted notes on the palate. There are silky and delicate tannins. Serving temperature: 16-18°C. Ageing potential: 3-5 years.
