From the village of Rasteau (which gained appellation status in 2010) in the Southern Rhone, this wine is a blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Syrah. Like Beaurenard's Chateauneuf-du-Papes, it is 100% hand harvested, with low yields (30 hl/ha) and 100% certified organic and biodynamic farming. It has great concentration, structure and balance, showing typical earth and garrigue notes with dark fruit. This is drinking very well now, and will continue to improve for the next few years.
