Editorial Reviews for Chapoutier Belleruche Cotes du Rhone Rose
The nose here is lovely with early suggestions of orange peel and grapefruit joined by light black currant and spicy strawberry aromas. Fairly light bodied, this doesn’t lack for structure with a nice peppering of tannin in the mouth and sufficient acidity to keep the lightly spicy raspberry and strawberry fruit lively. There’s a nice burst of spice and pomegranate on the backend that transitions to a moderately long finish of spice and fruit that ends back with on a citrus peel note. This is a bit dry and severe, just the way I like it. 90pts
Rich, smooth, pencil lead. New worldy. Light medicinal notes. Black cherry. Somewhat simple.
A very drinkable rose. Light flavors of strawberry up front and with a more sweet creamier finish. Creamier is probably not the best description, but this wine doesn't leave a big flavor impression, so a little hard to define. Definitely a good every day rose. Went well with spicy food. WF.
High quality, unadulterated, value Cote du Rhone. All the regions flavors that you can depend upon to serve with a wide variety of dishes from grilled burgers to fine cheeses.
