‘LA PONCE’ RASTEAU, Domaine des Escaravailles 2018



“My favorite of the scarab beetle wines (that’s the translation of Escaravailles) was the 2016 Rasteau la Ponce, a blend of Grenache (aged in concrete) and Syrah (aged in wood). Dried spices, cherries, and blueberries swirl together in outrageous harmony in this full-bodied, creamy-textured beauty that doesn’t lack for richness or vibrancy. It should drink well for at least another 5-7 years. Drink through 2025”
