The story

Our Rasteau L'Andéol is a delightful wine that will pair well with traditional hearty cuisine. You can age it for 6-7 years.

Ageing

Early maturing due to the location of the vines in a basin protected by the wind. Vinification after flash-heating the harvest, just like at Beaucastel. Long fermentation without punching down.
90% in stainless steel, 10% in Foudres. Ageing for 6 months before bottling.

The vintage

2009 is a great vintage of the Southern Rhône Valley. It’s a combination of ripe fruit, a rich and harmonious mouth and a fleshy finale with elegant tannins.
