2010 Domaine la Colliere "La Fontaine" Rasteau

SKU #1111899 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Aged completely in concrete and a brilliant example of the world class quality coming out of these smaller appellations in the south of France, the 2010 Domaine La Colliere Rasteau La Fontaine is a knockout blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre that comes from the blue clay soils of the south eastern part of the appellation. Pure Rasteau on the nose, with intense aromas of chocolate covered cherries, cured meats, spice box, and rolled stone-like minerality, it hits the palate with a full-bodied, rich, and gorgeously proportioned mouth feel that has nothing out of place, layers of fruit, and fantastic length. As with the straight Rasteau, it will benefit from short-term cellaring, and shine for over a decade. Readers should not miss this wine and hats off to proprietor Georges Perrot and consultant Philippe Cambie for this brilliant effort. Inner quote mark (9/2012)

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The brilliant 2010 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Rasteau La Fontaine is aged in a combination of tank and 600-liter demi-muids. Off the charts concentration and a bigger than life personality characterize this inky/purple-colored Rasteau. Notes of truffles, camphor, chocolate, kirsch, blackberries, roasted meats and bouquet garni emerge from this full-bodied, multidimensional effort. It is one of the finest Rasteaus I tasted on my tour through the southern Rhone Valley. Drink it over the next 15+ years. Inner quote mark (10/2011)
