Ortas La Domeliére Rasteau 2016

Rasteau, Côtes du Rhône Villages, Southern Rhone, Rhone Valley, FranceThere is something spicy and savoury about Rasteau that makes it a very inviting red wine for a robust dinner. La Domelière is planted to a commune hillside over chalky-limestone terraces covered with pebbles. The mix is on average 40-year-old grenache (70), syrah (20) and mourvèdre (10). The spice permeates its red fruit flavours, flecked with liquorice and garrigue. The palate is jammy with meaty fruit flavours with a peppery, fresh finish. Love the value here and it will improve over the short term in bottle. Try with pork, or chicken or pair with fresh goat and sheep cheeses.Tasted: 01 August 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 21.99 BCLS MB 18.04 MLCC ON 15.95 LCBO Producer: Cave de RasteauDistributors: Trialto Wine Group
