Famille Perrin Rasteau - L'Andéol - 2015

Rasteau benefits from the peculiar Southern Rhône climate. For the most part the Grenache is facing south and protected from the mistral, enabling it to mature particularly well. The wine develops aromas of figs, dark chocolate and a texture typical of the appellation.

Presentation

The vintage
2015 was a magnificent year in the south as well, characterized by excellent sanitary conditions thanks to the mild, wet winter, followed by a relatively hot, dry spring. The vines coped well with the extreme heat and lack of rain in the summer thanks to good hydric reserves. Following satisfactory flowering, rapid and regular ripening was assisted by rain that fell in August, producing berries rich in phenolic compounds and anthocyanins. As in the north, harvesting took place under excellent conditions.
