Hot summer nights. Beach. Bonfires. Driving down the 101 with the top down. Chapoutier Belleruche Côtes-du-Rhône Rosé evokes all the classic summertime memories. Perfect on its own while watching the sunset or pair it with a Watermelon, Feta & Olive Salad.
The music match is a dreamy summer anthem “Northern Girls” by Belleruche from the album Turntable Soul Music. The video was found by Bill Eyer at Cuvee Corner, who pronounced “her voice is like what wine would sound like if vino could sing.”
The details: 13.5% alcohol. Cork closure. Appellation: Côtes-du-Rhône. Varietal: mostly grenache, with cinsault and syrah for blending. Suggested retail $13 USD. Imported by Terlato Wines International. This was a media sample provided by Terlato.
