Ortas La Domeliére Rasteau 2019

Rasteau, Côtes du Rhône Villages, Southern Rhone, Rhone Valley, FranceSome wines just deliver year in and year out and this Rasteau is one of them. La Domelière is planted to a commune hillside over chalky-limestone terraces covered with pebbles. The mix on average is 40 years age for the grenache (70%), syrah (20%) and mourvèdre (10%). The palate is a savoury, spicy garrigue affair with dark red, slightly jammy red fruit, flecked with licorice and pepper. It’s the value and the honesty here that makes this wine so attractive. Drink or hold. Try with pork, or chicken or pair with fresh goat and sheep cheeses.Tasted: 14 July 2021Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
