- Cellar Drink Now - 3 years (2021-2024)
- ABV 15.5%
- Closure: Cork
A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre sourced from vines with an average age of 50 years. Magnificent inky black heart with a deep dark red black hue. Hedonistic black cherry aromas engulf the olfactory senses with liquorice, dried herbs, lightly scorched earth and peppery dried meat notes in hot pursuit. Opulent and large scaled, the palate is drenched in rich black cherry, liquorice and black raspberry fruits which are underpinned by scorched earth, peppered meats, dried herbs and hints of spicy old leather. Ripe chewy tannins provide support, firming up the finish and lead into a powerful, robust aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
Loaded with dark fruit, the 2016 Rasteau Vieilles Vignes is a blend of 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. Full-bodied, plush and long, it delivers purple-skinned plums, super ripe black cherries and pronounced licorice notes. It's hard to believe such great bargains continue to exist. Drink 2018-2022.

Also beautiful, the 2016 Rasteau Vieilles Vignes offers loads of black raspberry, blueberry, graphite and floral notes in a medium to full-bodied, ripe, hedonistic style that’s already impossible to resist. It’s a steal. The blend is 65% Grenache, 25% Syrah, and 10% Mourvèdre, and it’s going to keep through 2016, but bottles wouldn’t last that long at my house.
