With a deep colour, the nose discloses scents of truffle and quince. Powerful on the palate, this wine fits in a scenario dominated by pride and generosity. 10 years of aging will not damage the taste...

Wine AdvocateAlready in bottle, the 2012 Rasteau R&T is a step up over the 2011. A blend of 70% Grenache and 30% Syrah that spent 6 months in a combination of concrete and older barrel, it offers up copious leafy herbs, violets, blackcurrant, licorice and mint to go with medium-bodied richness and depth on the palate. Showing considerable polish and elegance, it will have 7-8 years or prime drinking.

Wine SpectatorQuite ripe, with crushed plum and blackberry coulis flavors, framed by silky tannins and backed by lingering anise and lavender notes. A graphite hint keeps this rich style honest. Drink now. 200 cases imported.
