Famille Perrin Rasteau L'Andéol - 2017

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

Part of the grapes are vinified in whole bunches, the other part is destemmed. The temperatures are controlled throughout the vinification and the extraction is done by punching down or pumping over. After malolactic fermentation, 90% of the ageing takes place in stainless steel tanks, 10% in oak Foudres. Ageing for a year before bottling.

The vintage

This 2017 vintage will be remembered as the year of all records: the driest year in 30 years, non-interventionist vineyard work, optimal harvest conditions, a very small yield due to climatic hazards, and wines with very rich potential.
