Domaine Raspail Coteaux du Tricastin 1986

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/110957 for £6.50. The Coteaux du Tricastin was an appellation for red,white and rose wines,although 95% of production are reds,from 21 communes to the south of the town of Montelimar on the east bank of the Rhone river.The appellation was granted in 1973 although viticulture in the area goes back to at least the Romans.. In 2010 the name of the appellation was changed to Grignan les Adhemar as the growers decided that they did not want the name of their wine to be associated with that of the local Tricastin Nuclear power station.I have not been able to discover much about Domaine Raspail in Tricastin although the label does say that it is owned by Michel Bernard,nor much detail about my wine. However I started it last night with my supper of chicken stew.There is plenty of a blackberry and bramble style fruit and the tannins were smooth and soft almost to the point of being bland.Perhaps it was a little past its ideal drinking window.However it was a good accompaniment to the stew.
