Domaine du Trapadis - VDF Rouge "Esprit" 2022
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 lower areas of Rasteau from vines 20 years old, cordon or cane pruned.
A bouquet of red fruit comes out in an open and immediate nose. The palate is fruity and intense with redcurrant and raspberry over a multi-dimensional layering of somewhat chewy tannins and a supple finish. There's fun hints of Mediterranean herbs and bright minerality that helps keep this wine fresh and zippy. 100% Grenache.
