Country: France

Chateau de Bellet is a grand building that is now enclosed within the outer suburbs of Nice. It is home to the de Charnace family who have produced fine wines here for many generations. Their vineyard falls within the tiny Bellet appellation which allows red wines based on the Braquet grape and whites based on the Rolle grape (similar to Vermentino) which develops particularly well in the Bellet terroir.
Their Cuvee Baron G is a flinty, dry white of considerable complexity made entirely from the Rolle grape. The wine is made without the use of pesticides.
This wine is now available in the United States through Blue Coast Wine Imports in New York (www.bluecoastwines.com). We recently enjoyed a bottle of this wine at Per Se in New York.
