Appellation: Rasteau Region: Rhône Valley County: France
Beautifully deep in color, Rasteau 2017 offers a superbly fresh nose with notes of garrigue and wild blueberries. This combination of fruit and spice is mirrored in the mouth, with notes of wild raspberry, rosemary and thyme.
Both the 2017s showed brilliantly. The 2017 Rasteau offers a raspberry and blackberry core of fruit as well as complex notes of sappy garrigue, mint, and even a hint of basil. Based on 80% Grenache, 17% Syrah, and 3% Mourvèdre, brought up in foudre, drink this medium to full-bodied, seamless Rasteau any time over the coming 5-7 years. Jeb Dunnuck, 92 pts
