Rasteau Cuvée Marc, Domaine Les Grands Bois 2019
Rasteau, with Cairanne, is very much the best of the 21 Côtes-du-Rhône Villages, and Rasteau has long been a favourite of mine. Richer still, this wine is grenache, syrah and mourvèdre, and will age beautifully.
Marc and Mireille Besnardeau of Domaine Les Grands Bois are fourth generation small family growers who have been organic or biologique since 2011. They were introduced to us by the owner of the best bistro in the village of Cairanne, whose house wines they provide. The family also makes some of the finest, very affordable wines in France.

I love a drop of Rasteau and this is a very good example the hearty Rhone. This is certainly a punchy version at 15% ABV but it went very nicely with the shoulder of lamb I had slow roasted.
