Description

Rasteau benefits from the peculiar Southern Rhône climate. For the most part the Grenache is facing south and protected from the mistral, enabling it to mature particularly well. The wine develops aromas of figs, dark chocolate and a texture typical of the appellation.
The 2011 vintage is a vintage of contrasts. That is to say an unusually hot, dry spring followed by a wet and rainy beginning of July and then an Indian summer lasting until the end of October. Carefully sorting and destemming the harvest allowed for a great vintage, particularly for the late harvest varieties.
2012 is a vintage of contrasts with a very mild start of the year and a freezing month of February.
A fresh and humid spring, followed by a windy and dry month of July and a very hot month of August.
The harvesting conditions were ideal. All these conditions make a great vintage.
