« One of my favorite wines from this estate, the 2012 Rasteau offers tons of ripe dark fruit, crushed rock, licorice and minerality in its full-bodied, concentrated profile. Made from 75% Grenache, 15% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre, it’s a classic Rasteau to drink over the coming 7-8 years. » (Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

Trés bon Rasteau avec une trés belle concentration .
Rating and review of M. FREDERIC M. Published on 10/10/2014
Marquer "vin d'expert" sur ses bouteilles,ça se la pète. Comme dirais Coluche "j'ai peut-être mauvais goût, mais c'est moi qu’achète". du tanin et du bois écrabouillé finement à 14,5°. Sure que ça doit plaire à Robert! Mais Bof.
