Domaine Grande Bellane Cotes du Rhone Villages Valreas Cuvée Sans Soufre or “No Sulphur” 2019*
Organically grown and without sulphur. Perfume of violets that seems endless. Dark – but still very primary – red/blue fruits including raspberries, berries and cherries. Intense, sweet natural ripeness of fruit. Equally ripe, rich tannins. Sensational fruitiness. Syrah (75%) Grenache (25%) blend. Winery advises to decant (go for 2 to 2 ½ hours).
*On 28 September 2020 www.wineguru.com.sg – our new website – will be offering Domaine Grande Bellane Cotes du Rhone Villages Valreas Cuvée Sans Soufre 2019 and five other wines at exceptional prices. I had pre-selected the 6 wines out of 151 wines from a distributor. My criteria are:
- All whites and sparkling must be UNOAKED (if oaked, must not be new oak)
- Reds, if oaked, the fruit must shine. We are not interested in the taste offurniture. We are lovers of FRUIT!
- Represent CRAZY or GREAT VALUE-for-money
