Famille Perrin Rasteau "L'Andéol"

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

90% in stainless steel, 10% in Foudres. Ageing for 6 months before bottling.

The vintage

The 2011 vintage is a vintage of contrasts. That is to say an unusually hot, dry spring followed by a wet and rainy beginning of July and then an Indian summer lasting until the end of October. Carefully sorting and destemming the harvest allowed for a great vintage, particularly for the late harvest varieties.
