1998 Chapoutier Cotes du Rhone Belleruche Rouge
This blend of 50% Grenache and 50% Syrah is a garnet red color. On the nose, there are red fruit aromas, mainly Morello cherries. In the mouth: well-structured, with sustained tannins. Recommended with all grilled or roast meats. The vineyards of the red Côtes du Rhône Belleruche extend over the "communes" of Sablet and Séguret, on a silty and stony subsoil.
