Brusset Rasteau 'Bastide' Rouge

A dark crimson blend of Grenache and Mourvèdre with a complex nose; aromas of blackberries, baking spice, toasty oak, and licorice carry through to the palate. This is a force to be reckoned with. A dense wine with excellent length, the tannins are present but well-rounded.91-93 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"I loved the 2015 Rasteau La Bastide, and this mix of Grenache and Mourvèdre has gorgeous black fruits, chocolate, roasted herbs and tar aromas and flavors. Ripe, medium to full-bodied, rich and chewy, it's a serious wine that will benefit from short-term cellaring." 91-93 points, Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate"A great family estate in Gigondas, Domaine Brusset was created by Andre Brusset in 1947. Today, it covers over 70 hectares (in Gigondas, Cairanne, Rasteau and Côtes du Rhône) and is run by Daniel Brusset, with help from his grandson, Laurent. This estate uses a relatively high percentage of new oak, and they definitely show modern characters in their youth, yet they age beautifully and in this reviewer's opinion, never lose their Southern Rhône charm or soul." -Jeb Dunnuck on Domaine Brusset, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Dec 2016
