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

Produced by the tiny Cave de Rasteau, this Côtes du Rhône Village wine is made of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvédre. With notes of black cherry, licorice, and plum, it is very approachable, yet maintains a serious structure and great acidity.
