Valreas, Domaine de la Grande Bellane AC (Rhone)
An established favourite from the Couston's remote estate. It's robust yet fruity, with all the characteristic spicy charm that wins this wine so many loyal friends. As usual all the normal components of this highly respected Rhone ranger are present - brambly/plummy fruit, cinnamon and pepper notes, and bags of confidence.
