Rasteau 2011 - Vancouver Sun

Par Adrien Tonelli

Wine for the Cellar

A bargain red that will further improve in the bottle for another five years makes this Rasteau collectible. In 2011 the fruit jumps from the glass in a preview to its wild red fruits and pepper flavours that see only 10 per cent wood via large foudres. The red fruit is juicy and dense with the usual glossy textures mixed with chocolate and a hint of butcher’s block. A perfect foil to any rotisserie chicken dish.
