Belle - Crozes-Hermitage Les Pierrelles
The nose is very open, an immediate basket of fresh fruit, full of blackcurrants, raspberries and juicy pomegranates. This indulgence then develops with deeper, darker, almost tuberous notes like iris-root. Resinous juniper and wood ash also enhance the aromatic palette and lengthen the perception. The palate is a real treat: soft and flattering. As usual for this cuvee, softness dominates from the attack. Fine, silky tannins increase the mouth volume and the sensation of pleasure. The finish is long and displays excellent balance, with no heaviness. This delicate wine is already very pleasing. It can be opened now simply for the pleasure - and why not as an aperitif, as it needs hardly any accompaniment. On the other hand, if it is destined for the table, it goes very well with roast poultry, rabbit or offal.
