This family estate in the Northern Rhône has forged an enviable reputation for supple, generous wines.

Previously a member of the local co-op, the Belle family have rapidly made a name for themselves as a producer to watch. The domaine extends to 19 hectares in 4 communes and two appellations, Crozes-Hermitage and Hermitage. Low yields in the vineyards (30-35 hl/ha) and, of course, the wonderful climate helps produce grapes of exceptional quality. The red wines are produced traditionally using whole bunches of grapes and extended maceration. They are then matured in oak for between 12 and 18 months with 20 to 25% new barrels each year.
