The 2011 Cotes du Rhone Belleruche (also mostly Grenache) offers lots of pepper and kirsch liqueur along with medium body, good purity and a naked sty...
Mainly Grenache, then Cinsault and Syrah.
The vineyards of “Belleruche” rosé are located
on old fluvioglacial terraces, on the right bank
of the Rhône.
The soil is composed of sand and clay.
Grapes are pressed directly without
any maceration. Then the must is separated
whilst still cold. The alcoholic fermentation
is performed for about 20 days and
the temperature is regulated around 15°C.
The wine is aged in vats and is bottled
at the end of winter.
