Founded in 1925, the Cave de Rasteau is one of the oldest cooperative wineries in the south Rhone Valley in France. The 180 growers benefit from the exceptional terroir of Rasteau, village that has applied for the Cru appellation like Châteauneuf-du-Pape; and finally obtained it with the 2010 vintage. The terroir is both complex and consistent, giving the Cave de Rasteau wines their unique taste.

A deep glistening pink with aromas of red fruit and cherries. Fruity on the palate with notes of strawberry tart and a hint of flintiness. A very well balanced rosé.
Very good as an aperitif and with salad, barbecues, white meat, etc.
