Tasting Notes

The best Rasteau we've tasted in years! Les Marcels is a hillside site with some of the oldest Grenache vines dating back over 100 years. With 15% Mourvedre added, the perfume here is to die for, only getting better after being open for 24 hours. There's such purity and lift to the fruit, plums and pretty floral notes on the nose backed up with darker elements, and hints of molasses, coffee and blueberries and damsons on the palate. It defies its alcohol and is an all-round totally gorgeous drop.

More Info

Vigneron Frédéric Julien used to be Vice-President of the Cooperative Cellar of Rasteau and started his own domaine in 2017 in the village of Vaucluse. The estate takes its name from a part of the AOC called Gramiller – a terroir of many soils where they have 2.5 ha of vines. With 15 ha of vines spread across five lieu-dits, since his beginnings in vine growing some twenty years ago, Frédéric Julien has always been a big supporter of organic farming and a strong believer in the importance of  farming with nature, rather than against it. Frédéric's wines are very precise, with as little external input as possible: just a minimal dose of SO2 at bottling for the estate’s wines and nothing at all for the Cuvées Natures. It’s all about the fruit! His no added SO2 cuvees are a masterclass in purity and consistency, and would convince even the most staunch critic of natural wine.
