Editorial Reviews for Côtes-du-Rhône Belleruche M.chapoutier France Grenache
This is big, but wonderfully balanced with plenty of acid buffering the sweetness. On the palate there are layers of rich raspberry and red plum fruits that turn a touch blacker on the finish. There are hints of dried black cherry, earth and fudge. Not terribly complex but with tons of ripe fruit and a lovely, zesty character. 88pts

A very nice everyday white burgundy, especially for the price. Nice citrus fruits. Flinty, slight minerality with little to no oak overtones.
Hard to beat the price point on this one. Nice flavors, good body, decent fruit.
As another reviewer mentioned, great value for cotes-du-rhone.
This was brought by a guest for Thanksgiving - I wasn't a big fan. Very light body, lots of acidity and not much else. It wasn't able to stand up to the various flavors and rich textures of the Thanksgiving meal.
Very nice. Buy more. Drink it all.

More flint barbecue smoke crushed rock spring flower blueberry and black raspberry characteristics are present in the full-bodied 2011 St.-Joseph Les Granits. Uncommonly fleshy and seductive it should drink nicely for a decade or more. -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
A magnificent effort, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Barbe Rac boasts huge notes of kirsch, exotic herbs, lavender, cedar, fig, black cherry, black currant, licorice and roasted meats. This flamboyant, rich, full-throttle Chateauneuf du Pape should age well for two decades. It will be interesting to follow this wine’s evolution alongside the brilliant 2009 and 2007 Barbe Racs.
There are 440 cases of the 2010 Cote Rotie La Mordoree. While it is a very strong effort I would rank it a point or two below the 2009 which I believe is the finest La Mordoree since the awesome 1991. It offers an impressive dense ruby/purple color along with a sweet bouquet of bacon fat black olives black currants raspberries earth and forest floor. Ripe and medium-bodied with light to moderate tannin it is somewhat closed at present and will benefit from 4-5 years of cellaring. It should keep for 20-25 years. 93+ -Robert Parker Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
100% black grenache. Deep garnet in color with the nose expressing aromas of dried fruits, red fruits, and cocoa, roasted coffee appearing with the years. Very powerfull mouthfeel, with long length. The fruits and the chocolate are the major aromatics of this wonderfully rich dessert wine. It can work as an aperitive. Also pairs well with blue cheese, chocolate desserts, cakes, dried fruits dessert, caramel, and coffee. Chapoutier Website
Aromas of red fruits, liquorice and grey pepper. This wine has a great structure with firm and silky tannins.
The wines exhibit the distinctive pepper and spice of Syrah, but are bigger and rounder in the mouth, with great complexity coming from the Carignan and Grenache.
So lush, so warm, so inviting, with ganache, plum sauce and blackberry coulis notes that fan out beautifully. But there's grip as well, with a mix of tar, shiso leaf, signed iron and charcoal all weaving through the finish, adding muscle and definition. Offers terrific range and length. Almost drinkable now, but this will get better. Best from 2014 through 2035.
Deep red garnet color, black cherries on the nose. Well-structured wine with sweet meaty tannins. The wine had the heat and wildness of the Roussillon area.
<p>This wine is a sweet dark red that is rich in tannins. The flavor is primarily cherry with other darker fruits, with a long, full-bodied finish that leaves its drinker satisfied. </p>
