M Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche Red 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Even better and a real sleeper of the vintage is the 2009 Cotes du Rhone Belleruche red Dominated by 80% Grenache with the rest Syrah and Mourvedre this wine has a deep rubypurpletinged color to the rim a big spicy peppery kirschscented nose and mediumbodied juicy flavors within triguing minerality and loads of fruit and texture This is a very serious Cotes du Rhone that should drink nicely for 34 years To Chapoutiers credit this is made completely from contracted biodynamically farmed vineyards as opposed to buying fermented juice from growers

M. Chapoutier:
The name CHAPOUTIER is present in the Rhône Valley since 1808. In 1879, the distant ancestor Polydor CHAPOUTIER was the first to begin to buy vines, thus moving from the status of wine-grower of an estate to that of a viticulturist, a wine producer and a businessman. The pioneering spirit was already present in the family.

Ruby-red. Alluring red berry and floral scents are lifted by a spicy quality. Juicy and perfumed on the palate, with fresh raspberry and cherry flavors picking up weight with air. Finishes spicy and focused, with a lingering note of candied anise.



Tasting Notes:

COLOR: dark garnet-red color NOSE: aromas of very ripe black fruits MOUTH: spicy and liquorice aromas
