|Varietal: || || |
70% Grenache, 30% Syrah
|Location: || ||Rasteau, Rhone Valley, France |
|Notes: || || |
The wine is made from 60-year-old Grenache vines (70%) and 30-year-old Syrah vines (30% of the blend) from the blue marl and red and yellow clay soils of the appellation. The Grenache is aged in cement tanks and the Syrah in barrels. Yields were a tiny 27 hectoliters per hectare.Big, mineral-driven and firm, with black cherry liqueur, spice-box, and new leather aromas and flavors all showing, this full-bodied, concentrated Rasteau needs to be decanted.
