    Winemaker Notes

    A red cherry and bright sheen robe with violet highlights. The nose presents aromas of brandy cherries and wild plum jam. The mouth is unctuous, full and silky with a lot of butter, on strawberries and raspberries jam, associated with plum marmalade.

    To savor with game, beef ribs, rack of lamb or young partridge with olives or a wild boar chop with chanterelles.

    Blend: 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 15% Vieux Carignan, 5% Mourvedre

    Domaine Coteaux des Travers, France
    Image of winery
    Charavin is a common name in Rasteau, and there are four producers who carry this name. Domaine des Coteaux de Travers (literally domaine of the slopes on the side of the rising sun) is owned by Robert Charavin. Its history dates back to Robert's grandfather Elie, who began cultivating the vines in 1931.

    Following the Second World War, the domaine expanded greatly. Robert Sr. took over in 1955 and, in 1976, sold his first wines in bottle. Robert Jr. took over the domaine in 1985.

    Robert began giving up weed-killers and synthetic sprays around 2008 and since 2012, has been certified biodynamic by Demeter. Charavin works rigorously in the vineyard plows between his rows of vines to encourage healthy underground life.

    A highly successful southern Rhone village promoted to Cotes du Rhone Villages status because of its intense and heady red wines, Rasteau is also recognized for its fortified wine, Vin Doux Naturel. Grenache is responsible for both styles. Rasteau also produces refreshing white and rosé table wines.

    With bold fruit flavors and accents of sweet spice, red Rhône blends originated from France’s southern Rhône Valley. Grenache, supported by Syrah and Mourvèdre typically form the base of the blend, while Carignan, Cinsault and Counoise often come in to play. With some creative interpretation, Rhône blends have also become popular in Priorat, Washington, Australia and California.

    Tasting Notes for Rhône Blends

    A Rhône blend is a dry, red wine and will vary according to its individual components, as each variety brings something different to the glass. Grenache is the lightest in color but contributes plenty of ripe red fruit and a plush texture. Syrah supplies dark fruit flavors, along with savory, spicy and earthy notes. Mourvèdre is responsible for a floral perfume and earthy flavor as well as structure and a healthy dose of color. New World examples tend to be fruit-forward in style, while those from the Old World will often have more earth, structure and herbal components on top of ripe red and blue fruit.

    Perfect Food Pairings for Rhône Blends

    Rhône Blends work with a wide variety of meat-based dishes, playing equally well with beef, pork, lamb or game. Braised beef cheeks, grilled steak or sausages, roasted pork and squab are all fine pairings.

    Sommelier Secrets for Rhône Blends

    Some regions like to put their own local spin on the red Rhône blend—for example, in Australia’s Barossa Valley, Shiraz is commonly blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to add structure, tannin and a long finish. Grenache-based blends from Priorat often include Carignan (known locally as Cariñena) and Syrah, but also international varieties like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, anything goes, and it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah make an appearance.
