REVIEWS

USA VINTAGE 2013 : Bright violet. Fresh red fruits on the fragrant nose, complicated by peppery spices and a floral element. Deep and sweet but energetic, offering juicy raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that fan out nicely on the back half. Silky tannins shape a long, pliant finish that leaves behind suave spicecake and lavender pastille notes. Quite graceful in character for a Rasteau and approachable now, in the style of this producer. The 2011 version of this wine is drinking perfectly right now, by the way.

USA - VINTAGE 2012

Millésime 2012 - Vintage 2012 Le nez est aromatique et offre une fine puissance, une fine concentration ainsi qu'un très fin charnu (en fond) et une fine complexité. On y retrouve des notes de cerise noire et de mûre de Boysen associées à de petites notes de baies de sureau, de poivre de Sichuan, de fleurs ainsi qu'à de fines touches de garrigue/olivier et d'épices. La bouche est fruitée, précise, bien menée et offre de l'élégance, de la suavité, de la droiture, une trame juteuse/acidulée ainsi que de la tension. En bouche ce vin exprime des notes de baies rouges juteuses, de cerise Bigarreau mûre/juteuse et plus légèrement de framboise écrasée associées à de petites touches de mûre écrasée/juteuse, à de fines touches de réglisse, de fleurs, de minéralité, à de discrètes pointes de poivre ainsi qu'à de très discrètes pointes de caramélisation, de thé, amande et de chocolat. Les tannins sont fins et très finement fermes. Bonne longueur et bonne persistance. Très fine mâche sur la fin de bouche/persistance. (90/100) The nose is aromatic, slightly powerful and offers a fine concentration, a (very) slight fleshiness (in the background) and a fine complexity. It reveals notes of black cherry and boysenberry combined with small notes of elderberry, Sichuan pepper, flowers as well as slight touches of garrigue / olive and spices. The palate is fruity, precise, well-built and offers elegance, suavity, straightness, a juicy / acidulous frame as well as tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy red berries, ripe and juicy Bigarreau cherry and small notes of crushed raspberry combined with small touches of crushed / juicy blackberry, fine touches of liquorice, flowers, minerality, discreet hints of pepper as well as very discreet hints of caramelization, tea, almond and chocolate. Tannins are fine and (very) slightly firm. Good length and good persistence. Very fine chews on the finish / persistence. 90/100

ASIA - vintage 2010

Vintage 2010 - USA A surprisingly easygoing, quaffable effort, the 2010 Château du Trignon Rasteau, a blend of Grenache and Mourvedre that’s aged in vat and foudre, displays moderate aromas of red and black fruits, licorice, and mineral, as well a medium-bodied, clean and well mouth feel. Not much depth or complexity here, yet it is enjoyable and should drink well for 3-4 years (Tasting in 2012)
