'The diversity of soils and grape varieties explains why Rasteau wines have such complexity in their aromas and flavours and are so potent, fine and elegant. The average age of the vines is 40, though some plots are over 80 years old: grapes from the old vines are used for Rasteau Vin Doux Naturel and and Côtes du Rhône Villages.
Grenache blanc finds perfect expression on the Rasteau terroir and gives blends fullness and generosity.
Clairette exhales white fruit and floral notes. It provides freshness and liveliness.
Bourboulenc, a late ripener, gives structure and complexity.'
