RASTEAU 2022 KEY PRODUCER

Rasteau red “Argilla ad Argillam” 2022
Silky, velvety blackberry fruit that’s smooth on the palate, no blockages in ripening here it would seem, clearly some clay terroir. Deep and resonant, this has great length and clarity of terroir expression. Great harmony and balance. Matured in 400-litre and 600-litre amphora for nine months before release.

Rasteau red “La Ponce” 2022
A fresh, pure expression, perfectly ripe fruit with no excesses. Lovely brightness on the palate, with fine tannins, and a stony finish. Long, straight, pure and fresh, very well balanced. From lieu-dit La Ponce, from 340m to 310m altitude. All destemmed.
