Domaine du Trapadis - Rasteau Rouge "Les Adrés" 2019
Based in the heart of the Rasteau appellation of Rhône, Domaine du Trapadis has been owned and run by the Charavin family since 1850. Helen Durand, the current owner, is the fourth generation of the Charavin family to grow grapes upon these soils. Spanning 35 hectares, the domaine’s vineyards are grown under the appellations of AOP Rasteau, AOP Rasteau VDN, AOP CDRV Cairanne, AOP CDRV Roaix, AOP CDR, and Vin de France. This cuvee comes from the Rasteau vines, at an average of 60 years old.
The 2018 Rasteau les Adres comes largely from the commune's slope. A tenth is aged in barrel, while the rest stays in concrete for 18 months. Hints of black olive and licorice accent raspberry fruit in this tight, taut wine. It's medium to full-bodied, with silky-ripe tannins and a lively, fresh-tasting finish. 90-92pts, Joe Czerwinski. 2018 review. 70% Grenache Noir, 20% Carignan, 10% Mouvedre.
