M. Chapoutier Côtes du Rhône Belleruche Blanc 2017
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone|
Wine AdvocateFrom clay and limestone soils, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Belleruche Blanc is a top-notch example of this cuvée. Pineapple and orange notes feature prominently in this medium to full-bodied white, underscored by hints of bitter pith and lime zest on the finish.
Wine EnthusiastCrushed stone and bright yellow apples introduce this full-bodied white blend. It's an elegant wine with a broad, satiny palate brightened by sunny tangerine acidity. A delicate bite of tea tannins marks the finish. Enjoy now-2022
