Belleruche Cotes Du Rhone 2011 wine review by (PB)
Ripe tropical fruit
Palate--Fruity tropical melange with good acidic backbone. Fleeting and short.
A tasty aperitif with a light cheese spread waiting the standing rib roast Christmas dinner.
Chapoutier puts together some classic Rhone quaffs at reaonsble price points. this is the ubiquitous $10 price point and is what you might expect.
*A house full of scents from candles and cooking skews a reasonable appreciation of the bouquet but even with the strong scents, the tropical fruit cuts through it all.
A refreshing aperitif so raise a glass!
