2020 Domaine de Beaurenard Rasteau, Rhone Valley, France
ABOUT THIS WINE
Classic blend of 80% Grenache, 17% Syrah, and 3% Mourvèdre.
Well-orientated slopes and terraces offer ideal sunshine exposure. The vines flourish in a stony limestone clay soil and find their full expression thanks to certified organic and biodynamic agriculture.
The grapes were hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard. Co-fermentation, vatting from 18 to 26 days for soft extractions. Matured for 12 months in vats, and oak foudres. The 2020 vintage is an excellent year for the region - a vintage with beautiful fruit ripening and nice yields.
