Clos Bellane Cotes du Rhone Villages Valreas 2018
|Region||France, Rhone, Cotes du Rhone-Villages|
The color is purple with intense and dark purplish reflections, betraying an exceptional maturity. The nose evokes graphite, menthol blackcurrant, green pepper with a terroir touch evolving in the altidude garrigue, olives, camphor, undergrowth. In the mouth, the velvety tannins are carried by the freshness of the terroir and give an additional dimension. The structure is present, but the trajectory on the palate is harmoniously striking, ending on a finely distinguished spicy fruity note.
Friendly, with a light dusting of vanilla over an open-knit core of cherry and plum preserves, backed by a fruitcake-accented finish. Drink now through 2022.
