The garnet red color with very clear and shiny purple reflections already sets the tone. The nose is instantly explosive with a strong presence of small fresh red fruits. After aeration, the notes of red fruits gain further momentum, then sweet spices such as cinnamon and cardamom, gray pepper dominate; then black fruits finish to complete the aromatic palette. A beautiful complexity.
The mouth does not disappoint; from the attack, flexibility dominates. The aromas of sweet spices prolong the perceptions of the nose. Very beautiful tannins bring velvety and give relief in the middle and at the end of the mouth. The finish is long and has a beautiful balance, without heaviness. This very delicate and sweet wine can be opened now and up to 10 years, if you prefer that spicy notes dominate. It will be associated with red meats, a grilled lamb with herbs or a roasted rabbit.

Beautifully perfumed, the 2012 Rasteau offers a sweet bouquet of red and black fruits, pepper, underbrush, incense and spices to go with a medium to full-bodied, deep and layered profile on the palate. Possessing solid mid-palate depth, fine tannin and rocking length, it should be a no-brainer purchase and drink nicely for 7-8 years. Located in Rasteau, Domaine La Colliere is run by the talented Georges Perrot, with consulting advice from Philippe Cambie. Both of these 2012s are excellent and some of the top wines in the vintage.
