Domaine Grand Nicolet
Rasteau ‘Terres des Bertrand’ 2021
This breath-taking Rasteau from Jean-Pierre has got to be up there as one of the bargains of the Southern Rhône. The quality of juice in the bottle for the price is quite remarkable. This cuvée comes from a higher elevation than most of his other cuvées, at nearly 1000ft. The cooler temperatures mixed with the clay and limestone soils result in a pleasantly perfumed, pure and elegant style of Rasteau. Ripe and concentrated black raspberries, plums and liquorice shine through on the palate, supported by a gentle backing of sweet red fruits and spice, Provençal garrigue as well as leathery and tobacco notes to round out proceedings. This is full bodied and well structured; however, you never feel the size. There is a real finesse here, with a harmonious balance between the silky tannins, alcohol, fruit and a subtle minerality. The finish is long and refined. Excellent value, great quality, drinking now but will also age nicely over the coming decade.
