Domaine Combe Juliere Rasteau 2019

A fleshy and delicately textured wine with deep black
fruits and notes of southern French garrigue through to a
warm and spicy finish.
Producer Note
A family owned estate which is considered to be among the top three producers in
Rasteau in the southern Rhône. Owner and winemaker Robert Laurent produces a
handful of stunning wines from old vine Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan from his
40 hectares of vineyards. Certified by Agrocert, the vineyards are cultivated sustainably,
with the utmost respect for the environment and without the use of chemicals.
Beautifully handcrafted, these opulent wines impeccably showcase the terroir of
Rasteau.
Vineyard
The vineyard is situated in the Rasteau appellation on hillside slopes which offer good
drainage and sun exposure. The soil layers are complex due to its various origins. Brown
clay, which comprises sediment from the Alps from the miocène period, and grey clay,
which is made up of sediment from algae, overlap here at root level imparting extra
complexity to the wine. The sunny weather and strong northern Mistral wind, keep the
vines dry and healthy. The vines have an average age of 70 years and are cultivated
according to sustainable methods. The vineyard is certified by AGROCERT and the
grapes are manually harvested.
Winemaking
Classical vinification techniques were used. The grapes were carefully sorted and
destemmed before undergoing a pre-fermentation maceration. A long, slow
fermentation took place in vats with wild yeasts lasting for 25 days, encouraging the
extraction of colour, flavour and structure. The wine was made in an unoaked style,
spending two years in concrete tanks in order to fully express the terroir.
Tasting Note
An opulent wine with a depth of concentrated black fruit. The tannins are present but
enjoyable as they are polished and integrated. Black fruits on the nose are echoed on
the palate with a touch of liquorice and spice through to a long, silky finish.
