Wine Enthusiast rating: 90 points

Winemaker's Notes:

50% Syrah, 30% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache Noir.

Fresh and fruity. A "thirst-quenching" wine that is a little tannic but mellow.

Barbecue, T-Bone steak, lamb chops, "cevenole" chitterlings sausage, matured cheese.

This wine is the flagship product of the domain. It symbolizes the Castillon family's capacity to extract the most from their soils with an honest to goodness fruity wine.

My Notes:

About Chateau Roustan:

Roustan is located near the sea in the South of the Rhône Valley. The estate's total surface covers 197,68 acres of sunny south facing vineyards, which benefit from the airy Mediterranean climate. The domain's owners are counted amongst the Rhône valley's most dynamic and talented winegrowers. The work that they accomplish allows the grape to breathe out and the use of oak barrels for ageing is restricted as much as possible.
