Winery & Vintage Info

The 2020 M. Chapoutier CĂ´tes-du-RhĂ´ne Belleruche is made using mainly Grenache and Syrah. There is several major types of terroir for this wine including pebbly clay soils, soils with layers of stones, stony clay terraces, stony silty-sand. All these soils provide the vine with a constant water supply and, at night, release the heat stored up by the pebbles during the day.

The grapes are picked at phenolic maturity and are mainly harvested by machine. After a total de-stemming, the grapes are vinified in concrete and stainless steel tanks for 3 to 4 weeks. Pumping over operations are carried out each day to gently extract the aromatic components, anthocyanin and tannins. The fermentation temperature is regulated and set at 28°C. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the temperature is allowed to rise to 30-33°C to assist the polymerisation of tannins. 6 months in concrete vats and stainless steel tanks. Winery Notes
