  • About this winery

    In the south of France sits the village of Rasteau, a small hilltop parish with a long history of winemaking. First established by the Romans in 30 BC, the hilly, south-facing slopes and smooth-pebbled soils of the region provide the ideal terroir for planting classic Rhone varietals like: Grenache, Mourvedre, and of course Syrah. Cave de Rasteau is one of Côtes du Rhône’s oldest co-operative wineries. Founded in 1925, it now consists of a union of eighty growers managing over 700 hectares....

  • Tasting notes

    Intense ruby red colour with rich red fruit, spice and liquorice aromas. Supported by a pleasantly smooth, full-bodied structure with plush, mellow tannins.

    Shows the purity and focus of the vintage, with a lovely core of fresh plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit melded together and backed by a light graphite spine on the violet-edged finish. A delight now, but has the balance to develop a bit more in the cellar.
