Rasteau is a cru of the Côtes du Rhône, specifically the southern Rhône. It is an area with a very specific geography, soil type, climate, and wine style that deserves our attention.
In this show we explore this region, discussing the land, the climate, traditions, grapes, and winemaking. The quality and differentiation among the wines of Rasteau and how it stands out as a very special place in the Rhône Valley Vineyards are clear when you taste these wines and when you talk to producers, so for this show we have two ambassadors for Rasteau, Frédéric Lavau of Lavau and Domaine Les Évigneaux and Françoise Joyet Larum of Domaine des Girasols. They join to represent the region and to tell us about this historic, beautiful and high-quality winemaking appellation.
In this show you’ll learn about:
