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

Early maturing due to the location of the vines in a basin protected from 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

In 2010, all the right conditions were united to produce an exceptional vintage.
Heavy rainfall during spring, followed by a very hot summer and an Indian summer in September allowed for great harvest conditions.
This vintage produced very balanced wines with intense notes of fruit and great finesse.
