Domaine Belleville Santanay Rouge 'Les Hâtes' 2016
Excellent value organic farmed (practicing and currently on the track to fully certified) red Burgundy. Cinnamon, clove and raspberry fruit, hint of savoury complexity.
Domaine Belleville are based in Rully where they have made wine since the beginning of the 20th century. The estate is currently practicing organic and is awaiting certification next year. The estate has vines across other parts of Burgundy but Rully represents the core of the estate where they have 5 premier crus. The wines are smooth, ample yet balanced and typical of the region which boasts wines to match many of those from Côte de Beaune but at much more palatable prices.
