The powerful Rasteau from the pen of Domaine Notre Dame des Pallieres comes in a dense crimson red colour in the glass. Held at a slight angle, the red wine glass reveals a charming shade of violet at the edges. The first nose of the Rasteau reveals notes of blackberries, blueberries and blackcurrants. The fruity parts of the bouquet are joined by notes of barrel ageing and even more fruity-balsamic nuances.
This red from Domaine Notre Dame des Pallieres is ideal for all wine lovers who like it dry. However, it is never sparse or brittle. Powerful and multi-faceted, this silky red wine presents itself on the palate. Due to its moderate fruit acidity, the Rasteau flatters with a pleasing palate feeling, without losing its juicy liveliness. In the finish, this red wine from the wine-growing region of Provence finally inspires with considerable length. There are again hints of blackberry and black currant. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the marl dominated soils are added.
Vinification of the Domaine Notre Dame des Pallieres Rasteau
The powerful Rasteau from France is a cuvée, vinified from the grape varieties Cinsault, Garnacha, Mourvèdre and Syrah. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Provence. The vines here dig their roots deep into marl soils. This Frenchman can literally be called a wine of the old world, which presents itself in an exceptionally impressive way. After the grape harvest, the grapes are immediately transported to the winery. Here they are selected and carefully ground. Fermentation then takes place in concrete and small wood at controlled temperatures. The vinification is followed by a maturation for several months in French oak barrels.
