In the glass, the Belleruche Côtes du Rhône 1.5 l Magnum of M. Chapoutier shows a dense purple color. Swiveling the wine glass, this red wine reveals a high density and fullness, which is evident in clear church windows at the edge of the glass. Poured into a Bordeaux glass, this Old World red wine reveals delightfully complex aromas of black currant, blueberry, mulberry and blackberry, rounded out by oriental spices, gingerbread spice and black tea.
This wine delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with exceptionally little residual sugar. As you would naturally expect from a wine in the top wine range, this Frenchman naturally enraptures with the finest balance despite all its dryness. Excellent taste does not necessarily require a lot of sugar. On the palate, the texture of this punchy red wine is wonderfully silky and dense. In the finish, this youthful red wine from the wine-growing region of the Rhône Valley finally thrills with good length. Once again, hints of mulberry and blueberry show. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the limestone and clay dominated soils join.
