Rasteau Les Argiles Bleues
Even better, the 2017 Rasteau Argiles Bleues (80/20 Grenache and Syrah) just screams Rasteau with its ripe, chocolaty dark fruit and scorched earth aromas and flavors. It’s rich, has tons of minerality, medium to full body, and a great finish. It’s capable of lasting for over a decade.
The flagship 2017 Rasteau Argiles Bleues is a beauty that exudes class as well as a complex, nuanced character. Black cherries, spice, dried garrigue, and leather notes give way to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated, nicely structured effort that should benefit from a year or two of bottle age.
