An assemblage of two different terroirs: yellow marls overlaid with large pebbles at higher altitude, and clay-limestone on the plain. The fruit is all hand-harvested, destemmed then fermented with gentle extraction. The wine is aged in large oak foudres for four months before bottling. It's deep and juicy, with appealing plum and blueberry fruits. There's more blackberry on the palate, along with dense tannins. It's very well balanced and well structured, with good length. A good value pick among the 2017 Rasteaus. (MW)
Aged in foudres, the 2017 Rasteau is a blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah. It's a pretty classic example of the appellation, with hints of chocolate drizzled over spiced cherries. Full-bodied and creamy-ripe, it somehow remains lively and mouthwatering on the finish. (JC)
The 2017 Rasteau is another high-quality wine in the making. Offering classic notes of scorched earth, dark fruits, licorice, and obvious minerality, it’s medium-bodied, has impressive depth of fruit, and a clean, enjoyable finish. It shows the fruit-forward style of the vintage as well as the classic signature of the appellation.
