Winemaker's Notes:

La Colliere Rasteau is a rich, full-bodied Rhone blend made from 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah.

Domaine la Colliere is a small family estate founded by Georges Perrot. He began bottling his own wine in 2002, renting some cellar space from Andre Romero of Domaine Soumade fame. Prior to 2002, all the juice went to one of the big negociants.

About Domaine La Colliere:

Domaine la Colliere is a small family estate founded by Georges Perrot. He began bottling his own wine in 2003, renting some cellar space from the mad king of Rasteau, Andre Romero of Domaine Soumade fame. Prior to 2003 all the juice went to one of the big negociants. Reknown Rhone enologist Philippe Cambie consults on the project, which is already receiving rave reviews from the press.

Robert Parker says, "This unheralded estate is making fabulous wines from their 62 acres of vines spread throughout Rasteau and the surrounding Cotes du Rhone appellation. Proprietor Georges Perot utilizes the services of the enormously talented Philippe Cambie, and, as one might expect, these are full-flavored, wonderfully pure, complex wines that respect their appellation."
