Domaine de Beaurenard Rasteau 2016
|Region||France, Rhone, Rasteau|
|Brand||Domaine de Beaurenard|
Beautifully deep in color, Rasteau offers a superbly fresh nose with notes of garrigue and wild blueberries. This combination of fruit and spice is mirrored in the mouth, with notes of wild raspberry, rosemary and thyme.
Leading off the bottled wines, the 2016 Rasteau is up with the finest vintages to date from this cuvée. Offering medium to full-bodied richness, classic notes of dark fruits, pepper, and damp earthy/clay soils, terrific balance, and sweet tannins, drink it over the coming 6-7 years.
Features a solid streak of raspberry and red currant coulis flavors running through, with light lavender, anise and singed balsam wood notes filling in through the finish. Drink now through 2020. 4,500 cases made, 1,100 cases imported.
