- Other Info:
- Cave De Rasteau is the leading producer and marketer of the new AOC Rasteau (it sells nearly 2.5 million bottles of it) and a force to be reckoned with on the world market. Indeed, though the AOC Rasteau label has applied solely to Vin Doux Naturel since 1944, the name of Rasteau has long since been known for dry red wines whereas VDN now accounts for just 5% of production. Rasteau is now a member of the inner circle of South Rhone crus: Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Tavel, Lirac, Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Beaumes de Venise and Vinsobres.
Made from 100% Grenache Noir: small, highly concentrated bunches with a yield of about 10hl/ha. The grapes are hand-picked when very ripe, bursting wit sunshine and containing more than 260g of natural sugar per litre before alcohol is added to arrest fermentation. The alcohol is added to the grapes; the juice then continues to macerate for a few days to fix the wine's magnificent purple colour and tannins. Two years' ageing in oak casks gives full expression to this sweet wine.
Sweet yet refreshing and showing sweet notes of honey and caramel, this Vins Doux Naturels dessert wine has depth, clarity and a long, persistent finish.
