Clos Bellane Cote du Rhone Villages Valreas 2015
|Appellation||Cotes du Rhone-Villages|
Wine AdvocateI also loved the 2015 Côtes du Rhône Villages Valréas, which is made from equal parts Grenache and Syrah, aged mostly in tank, yet 30% in barrels. It shows a medium-bodied, elegant, cool-climate-like style to go with pretty notes of black raspberries, white pepper, garrigue and integrated oak. It's not a blockbuster, but excels on its purity of fruit. Drink it anytime over the coming 6-7 years. Drink Date: 2016-2023.
