Chapoutier Rasteau is a deep purple colour with delicious raspberry fruit, lovely hints of spice, pepper and rich chocolate on the nose.

The vineyard of Rasteau is situated some kilometers far from “Les Dentelles de Montmirail”. It is one of the most imposing of the department of Vaucluse. It spreads out on brown-chalky soils and poor soils on marl. Grenache and Syrah are the grapes of our Rasteau. These last years, the use of new grape varieties, as Syrah and Mourvèdre, allowed to develop the real possibilities of the soil. The grapes are harvested when they are matured.

The vinification is carried out in the traditional way: the whole grapes are destemmed. Vatting lasts between 15 and 21 days with daily pumping over. Ageing is performed in vats. Blending is then carried out. The wine is bottled from 12 to 16 months after maturing.

The Chapoutier family have been making wine in the Rhône Valley since 1808, but it is since 1990 when Michel Chapoutier took over that the wines really began to speak of their origin.

Michel Chapoutier believes in allowing each parcel of land to make the best wine it can naturally and so much of his estate is farmed bio-dynamically.

Two words combine and create a core value. “Bio”, meaning life, and “Dynamics”, in action. The Maison M.Chapoutier has chosen to use organic and bio-dynamic farming for most of its vines (certified since 1999).

This is born out of a conviction: that one should let the land live and speak. Above all else, it is about enabling the terroir (soil, climate, know-how) to express itself fully.

In fact, the expression, transmutation of mineral into vegetal, can only exist with a living terroir, able to transmit life.”
