Garnet ripe berries, "herbes de provence". Balance between body and freshness. Finish on notes of spices and undergrowth. Pairs well with game birds, rack of pork, lamb chops.

Five years after bottling, this wine still offers loads of fresh, punchy blackberry and plum flavors. It's a bold, penetrating wine nuanced by hints of granite and wet earth. The fresh finish lingers on fine, integrated tannins. Lovely now it should improve further through 2022 and hold a few years longer.

Bright purple. Fresh red fruits on the fragrant nose, complicated by peppery spices and a floral element. Deep and sweet but energetic, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that fan out nicely on the back half. Silky tannins shape a long, pliant finish that leaves behind suave spicecake and lavender pastille notes. Quite graceful in character for a Rasteau and approachable now, in the style of this producer. The 2011 version of this wine is drinking perfectly right now, by the way.

A step up over the Côtes du Rhône, the 2013 Rasteau offers attractive notes of spice, black cherries and dusty earth in a firm, edgy package that has good concentration. Drink it over the coming 4-5 years.
