About the Wine
This wonderful red wine from M. Chapoutier is crafted in the Côtes-du-Rhone area of Rhône. Available in 75cl bottles, distributed in the UK by Hatch Mansfield. M. Chapoutier Cotes-du-Rhone Rouge Belleruche is an interesting wine, made from Shiraz/Syrah grapes. This cork closed wine is created with added sulphites. Like many wines in our list, this wine is suitable for vegan diets. Spicy, rich, fruit-driven partner for bold beef and chicken dishes with hot, tangy or fruity dark sauces.
This is a sweet thin skinned grape that gives wine that is high in alcohol and full bodied, but light in colour and tannins. It's often used in blends and responds well to oak ageing.

Most of France enjoyed a long, glorious warm summer, which set wineries up for a great 2018 vintage. A welcome relief from the previous one which was the smallest since World War II.Explore France
