Grape variety: Mainly Grenache and Syrah.
Soil: The vineyards of the red Cotes du Rhone “Belleruche” covers 4 departments (Drome, Vaucluse, Gard and Ardeche) on different soils (clay and calcareous alluvial deposit terraces, clay¡) giving to the “Belleruche” an extraordinary richness and complexity.
Harvest: The grapes are harvested at good maturity.
Winemaking: The grapes are entirely destemmed.
Vatting lasts around 15 days and provides a great tannic structure. This allows ageing and guarantees a good stability.
Maturing: Ageing is performed in vats with regular pumping over in order to clarify the wine.
Alcohol degree: 13.5%
