Natalie's Score: 90/100
Rich, savoury and full-bodied: this southern French red wine has it all. This is a Rhone Valley blend of Grenache and Syrah from one of the region's most respected producers who has been making wine since 1808. The price point is amazing for this quality.
Food pairings: steaks, ribs, grilled meats, pasta sauces, pizza, cheese, hearty stews, blackened seafood.
Blissful Blue Cheese Wine

|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This wine has a vivid medium ruby colour with a watery rim. The bowl is overflowing with the scent of cherries and fresh plums and reveals a bittersweet savory greens in the background. This wine has a medium-full body and is extra dry. Yet, its mouthfeel is lighter than you'd expect and is loaded with juicy fruit flavours. The tannins are showy yet gentle and well-balanced with a bright and mouthwatering acidity, which ends in a long and gentle sour cherry finish.
At $17.95 it is hard to think of better value for such a well-made Grenache-Shiraz blend from the Côtes-du-Rhône. It will pair well with pork chops, grilled meats, and stews. Or, will be just as lovely to enjoy on its own. Drink now or keep 2 or 3 more years.
Score 90. (S. Segard, Reviewed in Jan. 2017)
|Michel Chapoutier consistently puts out a stellar wine at a great price point. It's like he wants to introduce as many people as he can to great-tasting organic and biodynamic wines. And, why not? Belleruche 2014 is a deep-ruby, full-bodied Southern Rhone red; a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. Fresh red cherries, strawberries, mulberry and rose hip tea on the nose and the palate is rich and smooth with subtle cinnamon, nutmeg spices and a lingering cocoa and coffee finish. Well-balanced and structured, this is another great Belleruche vintage from Chapoutier. Pair with grilled lamb ribs or venison chops. - Community Wine Reviews|
