Famille Perrin Rasteau - L'Andéol - 2014

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 2014 vintage is surprising for the region. It is characterised by a mild, damp winter, a hot and dry spring and a temperate and humid summer. An unusual year, a winemaker year. Bud break was very early, flowering took place in ideal conditions and fruit set was excellent, especially on Grenache. However, work in the vineyard and rigorous monitoring of the vineyard until harvest were necessary with wet months of July and August, favouring the vegetative growth.

Tasting notes

A balanced vintage, the wines are already showing great potential. Complex nose (notes of blackberry and cherry), rich and elegant. The tannic texture is structured giving a nice vintage that will age. The 2014 will be aged in big oak barrels.
