Aromas of ripe fruit and honey on the foundation of prominent minerality. Lean, round and balanced palate with lingering finish. In short, it's a very well made Cotes du Rhone white at an incredibly reasonable price. Clos Petite Bellane lies south of Valreas and north of Vinsobres on a plateau at 400m surrounded by lavender fields. In summer, the air is suffused with the aroma of lavender and there are stunning views of Mont Ventoux to the southeast. The altitude means the air is cooler especially at night and refreshes the vines. Pair with chicken, seafood, vegetables, charcuterie, or soft cheeses.
