Domaines Grande Bellane & Montmartel
Montmartel and Grande Bellane are fifth-generation family estates with prime vineyards located in the villages of Visan, Valréas and Saint Maurice. Once split between two brothers, they have been re-united by their descendant, Damien Marres. Superb terroir, low yields and a range of soils to suit different varieties result in really interesting wines. The Valréas is full of spice, while the Visan has intense fruit.
Vineyard size 60 hectares. Organic since 1992.
Visan Côtes du Rhône Villages AC, Montmartel
A richly flavoured and fuller-bodied Côtes du Rhône showing classic characteristics of the region. Dark-fruited notes of blackberries, damsons and blackcurrant jam are lifted by a bouquet de garni herbaceous note as well as minerals and black pepper. You’ll also find a lovely spice and smoke twist in the mix, and for an unoaked red there’s considerable structure so it’ll age nicely if you can resist it.
