    From a legendary Rhone Valley wine making family the Chapoutier’s have been producing kick ass, world class reds in France’s eastern Rhone Valley region since 1808 and today Michel (Chapoutier) runs the show.

    The Belleruche label is always a favourite in the range and the 2019 doesn’t buck the trend. A blend of around 80% juicy Grenache and 20% ripe, spicy Syrah this is a wine that Michel loves to bust out with the Sunday lunch, saying “its perfect balance of natural fruit flavors from the Grenache and the structure, spiciness, and gentle tannins from the Syrah make it an excellent pairing for a wide variety of dishes, from roast chicken and pork to grilled and roast lamb.”

    Organic and biodynamically produced you’ll also find the labels for the Chapoutier range of wines printed in braille – Michel’s tribute to a local legend, Maurice de la Sizeranne. Maurice went blind aged nine whilst playing and went on to become a music teacher, writer, publisher and invented the first abbreviated version of braille.
