Cave de Rasteau:
Rasteau covers an area of 1880 hectares with 1240 devoted to the vine. It has a Mediterranean climate and the exposure of the vineyards is excellent: 70% of them are on south-facing hillsides (at 200-400 metres) swept by the Mistral; the soils are different types of clayey limestone, some of them covered with smooth stones.

It has a Mediterranean climate and the exposure of the vineyards is excellent: 70% of them are on south-facing hillsides (at 200-400 metres) swept by the Mistral; the soils are different types of clayey limestone, some of them covered with smooth stones. The diversity of soils and grape varieties explains why Rasteau wines have such complexity in their aromas and flavours and are so potent, fine and elegant. The average age of the vines is 40, though some plots are over 80 years old: grapes from the old vines are used for Rasteau Vin Doux Naturel and and Côtes du Rhône Villages. Read less

This mouth-puckering concoction has a deep cherry robe and a mute nose of currants with a hint of blueberry. There is some stemminess on the bouquet as well - possibly due to the Mourvedre component. The wine is more structured, less juicy and less unctious than more Grenache-dominated Rasteau, but the mouth-feel suggests aging to 2017 or 2018. An almond-like acerbity on the finish and a slightly weak fruit core are the only detractions at this point. Good value. 88 points.

Very juicy and mouthfilling, with nice structure pushing through the core of blueberry ... Drink now through 2013. -JM

Comprised of Grenache, Cinsault and Carignane, this simple style CDR is very pretty in color and the aromas come off rather succinctly: violet, wood, vanilla and earth. Tart cherry is most prevalent, with soft tannins and a gentle midpalate. There is an undertone of stewed fruit here that lingers in the end, but the tartness cleans it right up. If braised short ribs are your thing, this is your wine.

This has nice ripeness and cut, with linzer torte and blackberry fruit supported by bright acidity and backed by a lingering, toasted spice finish. Very tasty. Drink now.
