The Story

The vineyards of the red Côtes du Rhône Belleruche extend over the "communes" of Sablet and Séguret, on a silty and stony subsoil coming from the former bed of the rhône. The grapes are hand harvested at maturity. 100 % destemmed. Maceration lasts 15 days and procures a good tannic structure which permits the ageing and guarantees the stability of the wine.
