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.

Critical Acclaim

"The intense opaque purple-colored 2010 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Rasteau is loaded with black fruit, licorice, smoked meat and melted chocolate aromas. Full-bodied with surprisingly civilized tannins for a Rasteau, this finesse-styled 2010 should drink nicely for 10-12 years.
Range: 91-93"
