Clos Bellane Comme Un Saphir Blanc 2020 Cotes du Rhone Villages Valreas
Nestled on the limestone-rich Vinsobres plateau in the northern part of the Southern Rhone, Clos Bellane produces wines of impressive finesse. Here, respect for the land and the grape is the cardinal principle behind each and every single bottle.
Since 2010, Stephane Vedeau has encouraged a balance between sustainable, organic practices and innovative, creative winemaking, resulting in wines that are not too rustic yet not over-manipulated. One might say that, here at Clos Bellane, the wines are the most elegant versions of their natural selves.
In this wine, the minerality and freshness of pure Roussanne sparkle like a precision-cut sapphire. Delicate flowers and blossoms float on top of stone fruit draped in beurre noisette. Diamonds may be for forever, but sapphires are most definitely for right now.
