Clos Bellane « Urgonien 1.14 hectare » 2020 rouge


Checking in as a blend of n% Grenache and 23% Mourvèdre, the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Urgonien 1.14 Ha was brought up mostly in concrete tank but about 10% was raised in old barrels. lt has a gorgeous bouquet of black raspberries, camphor, rose petals, and peppery herbs, which carries to a medium to full-bodied, seamless 2020 with fine tannins and a great finish. lts oak is perfectly integrated, and it has a certain Burgundian-like character in both its aromas and flavors. Drink bottles over the coming decade or so.
