Description

Chapoutier Rasteau

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

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. http://www.chapoutier.com/rasteau,A-O-C-wine,ras.html

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.”

Grape variety

Grenache and Syrah.
These last years, the use of new grape varieties, as Syrah and Mourvèdre, allowed to develop the real possibilities of the soil.

Soil

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.

Harvest

The grapes are harvested when they are matured.

Winemaking

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.

Maturing

Ageing is performed in vats.
Blending is then carried out.
The wine is bottled from 12 to 16 months after maturing.

Alcohol – 14%

Fac & Spera, “Do & Hope”, is the Maison Chapoutier’s motto and this is the philosophy behind our single vineyard selections that are the result of the selection from one particular plot.

Here, the winemaker lets the terroir express itself unfettered to achieve the conjunction of soil, climate and traditional know-how with exactitude.

It is a snapshot of a grape, in a certain year, in a given terroir. These are exceptional wines, rare wines, created from our oldest vines. Here bio-dynamics comes fully into play.
