Domaine de Beaurenard Rasteau 2019
|Region||France, Rhone, Rasteau|
|Brand||Domaine de Beaurenard|
This highly concentrated wine, made from vines planted on the best slopes and terraces of the famous Rasteau soils, has an appealingly strong personality. Besides aromas of very ripe fruit, it is generally laced with notes of spice and garrigue scrubland scents specific to this terroir. Appealing tannic structure, a rounded body, rich and powerful…this is the Beaurenard's typically strong character. 80% Grenache, 17% Syrah and 3% Mourvèdre
There are two Rasteau from this reference point Châteauneuf du Pape producer. Starting with the 2019 Rasteau, it has plenty of chocolatey black raspberry and cherry fruits as well as loads of minerality, medium body, a ripe yet focused frame, and a great finish. This is classic, powerful Rasteau that's going to benefit from 1-3 years of bottle age and evolve for a decade. It's beautifully done.
Fresh and focused, with a racy beam of cassis and plum fruit carried by a graphite edge and backed by a mouthwatering anise note on the finish. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2024. 5,000 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.
