La Petite Bellane 2015 - Clos Bellane, Côtes du Rhône Villages

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Turn the glass and have a look ; you can now watch thick tears slowly rolling down on the sides. What does it mean ? Probably that this wine has a thick texture. And indeed, on the palate, you’ll feel it along with strong flavours of blackberry and liquorice, typical of 2015 vintage in southern Rhône Valley. It’s doubtlessly a deep and powerful wine that should be paired with a slice of beef ! 

 

Terroir

Clos Bellane’s vines face the East. Sun rises on the East and set on the West. It means that for Clos Bellane’s vines, mornings are longer than afternoons. Therefore, grapes gets concentrated in sugar (that turns into alcohol) thanks to photosynthes is during the morning and ripens in the warm air of afternoon. This is the reason why this wine is quite concentrated in alcohol but at the same time still fresh and well balanced.

lecepage Grape variety

If Syrah is the only variety used in Northern Rhône Valley, you can also find it in the South but mainly as a complement in a blend. Petite Bellane, made up of 93% Syrah is therefore pretty exceptional. What is the reason ? ‘’Terroir”. Indeed, as you read above, this terroir conditions are very close to Northern Rhône’s Valley. With perfect conditions for cultivating great Syrah, it would be a pity not to benefit from them for making a unique and delicious wine !

lemillesime Vintage

2015 will remain a memorable vintage among years. Foreseen as an amazing vintage, 2015 met the predictions thanks to : a summer heatwave stronger than 2003, the rain which only started mid-August letting grapes ripe for a long time, and then the sun came back, together with his friend wind, keeping vines healthy. When Mother Nature wants you to taste amazing wines, you just have to accept ! 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Stéphane Vedeau is the great grandson of an agronomic engineer who owned vines in Northern Rhône Valley. However, he decided not to follow his family footsteps by growing his ones in Southern Rhône Valley, between Valréas and Vinsobres. He bought here a vineyard in 2010, and named it Clos Bellane. However, that’s not because he moved away that he decided to change his ancestral techniques and love for Syrah. Family matters !
