The Oddbins Take

Positioned as it is between two lands, the Northern and the Southern Rhone, ‘Les Echalas’ is much like CS Lewis’ wardrobe in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The combination of Southern Rhône varietals grown in the altitudinous Northern Rhône hits that magical spot, like the moment when Lucy, Edmund, Peter and Susan are still pushing past fur coats, when the air starts to get cold and they realise they are stepping into Narnia. With a beautiful palate of honey, beeswax and vanilla, Les Echalas can rival even the the finest Turkish Delight.

Clos Bellane is a unique property situated high on the hills outside of Valréas in the North of Southern Rhone. The altitude of the Northern Rhone combined with southern varieties gives extraordinarily intense, scented wines.
