DOMAINE BELLE

LVT 2018 r 2018 wh The Belles also cultivate 20 hectares of apricots under brother Jean-Claude - hence they are a typical, mixed activity domaine at Crozes-Hermitage. Philippe [pictured] is in charge of the wine side. The vineyard was officially registered as organic in 2014 after the first trials in 2008. There is high, consistent quality. This is a benchmark domaine, the wines possessing agreeable fruit and sound tannin. The style is modern, but there are complex implications, and some wines are STGT, notably those from Larnage, such as the 2013 Roche Pierre red and the 2014 Terres Blanches white. Excess oaking is no longer an issue. The Crozes-Hermitage Louis Belle red is a serious, structured wine that keeps and evolves well. The Hermitage red and white are both pretty good, also.
