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

Deep garnet in colour with aromas of black fruits, liquorice, leather, and a hint of smoke. This structured wine is bursting with freshness and elegance. It features a long finish with nuances of mineral and pepper notes. Pair with beef, roast chicken, duck, and soft cheeses.
