Clos Bellane

Balance & purity

 

 

The Clos

 

The vineyard, from which offers itself an exceptional panorama on Ventoux and the Laces of Montmirail, extends over 48 hectares all in one piece, in southeast, southwest exposure. In red Grenache dominates, completed by Syrah, whereas Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier and sparkling white wine are divided the roles into white.

The soil is fabulous and wine storehouses semi buried, convenient to the patient work towards the elegance and the sharpness, will allow us to polish up our breeding and to store our vintages in bottles without air conditioning there.

A constant temperature all year long it is the certainty of a serene evolution for the biggest respect for our juices and for the amateurs of beautiful vintages.

 

The soul

 

 

Acquired in 2010 by Stéphane VEDEAU, Clos Bellane is situated on the tray of Vinsobres, in the southeast of Valréas, in the heart of the Enclave of the Popes in Vaucluse, but inside the Drôme.

More in the North! It is the guarantee of an annual temperature convenient to the slow macerations of bays, security of elegance and delicate notes.

Higher! With his 400 meters in heights for more freshness the summer, in grounds and for the plant.

Quite in the East! To make sure of a softer sun in the east than at sunset and so slow down the excessive evaporation which concentrates in alcohol.

Finally, a soil rich in active limestone stops succeeding these rare balances by its structural freshness and its complex minerality.

 

 

The know-how

 

 

The ultimate quest is to create elegance and freshness to balance the natural richness found in the fruit of the sites.

We observe and accompany the fruit to maintain the balance.

This is seen in his practice of using no sulphur or additions in the winemaking process. Minimal SO2 is added just before bottling and he uses only natural yeasts found in the vineyard for the fermentation process.

Gorgeous on all fronts, it glides over the palate with no weight, has silky tannin and a great, great finish. Enjoy this Rayas look-alike anytime over the coming 12-15 years.
