M. Chapoutier Côtes du Rhône Blanc Belleruche 2002
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.
External Reviews for M. Chapoutier Côtes du Rhône Blanc Belleruche
Ruby-red. Dark berries smoke licorice and gunflint on the nose. Offers a silkier texture and more flesh than the preceding 2002 reds with good fruit for the vintage. Complicating notes of pepper gunflint and licorice. Tannins are a tad dry but fine-grained. But there s good supporting material here. Appears to have the fruit to improve with four or five years of additional bottle aging. 88+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
