Clos Bellane Rouge 2019 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.
Grenache and Syrah play off one another here: ripe, rich fruit is lifted by bright, peppery spices. The terroir's supporting role also cannot resist showing off by adding freshness, dimension, and something just a touch herbaceous.
