Chateau Beaurenard Rasteau 2020
"Following a mild, wet winter that replenished groundwater reserves, the season was notable for its precocity. Frost damage from the episode of March 25 was, very fortunately, limited, and in the course of the equally mild and damp spring that ensued, regular applications of tisanes and essential oils effectively protected the crop. Flowering that started in the second week of May confirmed the early nature of the vintage. Plentiful water resources accumulated over winter and the occasional summer showers ensured a progressive and optimum ripening of the grapes. The harvest was particularly splendid and picking lasted from August 25 to the final days of September.
The grapes are hand-picked and sorted in the vineyard. Co-fermentation, vatting from 18 to 26 days for soft extractions. Matured for 12 months in vats, and oak foudres.
Rasteau 2020 offers intense aromas of black fruit and blueberries, lifted by a touch of spice. The density and depth of the palate associate fruit and minerality with remarkable persistence." -Supplier notes
