Domaine Wilfried

Rasteau 2018

Rasteau is a one of the 17 'Cru' wines of the Rhone and shares many of the qualities of its famous neighbour Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but the wines tend to be earlier drinking and more approachable. The soils are also different in here, without the large heat retaining stones (galets). Wilfried's Rasteau is a serious Southern Rhone red but with an emphasis on freshness and elegance. The 2018 vintage has a nice amount of age and shows great complexity and soft tannins.
