Wine beautiful golden-yellow color.
The wine has a rich, well-balanced and fresh taste with a hint of cinnamon in a long aftertaste.

Domain Bellan produces dozens of wines, but applies to all "only one commandment not to complicate the wine to be seen in each of its origin. How is this possible? Thanks to the natural fermentation maceration for about 12 days in concrete or steel tanks, aging in oak barrels medium roasting.
