The vineyards of "Belleruche" rose are located on old fluvioglacial terraces, on the right bank of the Rhone. The soil is composed of sand and clay.
Grapes are pressed directly without any maceration. Then the must is separated whilst still cold. The alcoholic fermentation is performed for about 20 days and the temperature is regulated around 15 Deg C. The wine is aged in vats and is bottled at the end of winter.
Colour: pale pink colour, with salmon-pink lights.
Nose: it provides a mixture of red fruit (currant, raspberry, cherry), citrus (grapefruit) and grenadine aromas, enhanced by a touch of menthol.
Palate: the attack is frank, held together with a freshness which is well-balanced and round.
The wine is to be served around 10 Deg C with summer dishes such as fish barbecues and Mediterranean Cuisine.
Ideal for buffets (grilled meats, sausages...) and excellent with cheese.
