jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2017 Rasteau Les Valats (90/10 Grenache and Syrah) is another terrific barrel sample from this team, offering a medium to full-bodied, ripe, sexy style as well as classy notes of red and black fruits, ground pepper, and melted licorice. It’s a classic Rasteau."

2016 Alain Jaume Rasteau Les Valats - 90 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"The 2016 Rasteau Les Valats is another outstanding wine from this team, offering classic Rasteau earthy black fruits, gravelly minerality, and a touch of spice to go with a full-bodied, concentrated, powerful style on the palate. Based on 80% Grenache and 10% each of Syrah and Mourvèdre, it’s a powerful yet balanced 2016 that will keep for 7-8 years."

2016 Alain Jaume Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau Les Valats - 91 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 91 pts"Notes of wet sandstone, crushed earth and olive lend elegant restraint to crisp black cherry and blackberry here. A blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, this concentrated wine is marked by savory tones of dried mint and sage. Fine but firm tannins and a mineral freshness accent the finish. It's ready now but should improve through 2030. - ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA"

jeb dunnuck logo 250"A blend of 90% Grenache and 10% Syrah, the 2017 Rasteau Les Valats is a classic example of this terroir and offers a darker, smoky, earthy, and chocolaty vibe as well as a rich, mouthfilling style on the palate. Nicely balanced, with a fleshy, expansive mid-palate and great tannins, it’s total charmer to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years."
