Clos Bellane is a unique domaine situated high on the hills outside Valreas in the northernmost section of the Southern Rhône. The pure limestone along with the high altitudes allow the wines to obtain an elegance and restraint that reminds one of the Northern Rhone.
Famed winemaker Stephane Vedeau purchased Clos Bellane in 2007, with his first release in 2009. Since then the domaine has been established as a bastion for cool climate Southern Rhone wines. The vineyard are all certified organic and the wines are made with a minimalist approach. Extraction is kept to a minimum, only indigenous yeasts are used, and the wines are aged in a combination of tank, concrete, and large older barrels.
