Winemaker Notes: Domaine la Collière stands out in Rasteau as a proponent of a more elegant style of wine. Their wines are adamantly Rasteau but lifted and bright. This blend of Grenache and Syrah mixes the richness typical of the blue clay soil with the freshness of grapes grown on lighter clay limestone soils.
