La Luminaille, Rasteau – Garance


Deep-red Rasteau from a favoured site.

The lieu-dit La Luminaille is a special place in local folklore, found behind the village of Rasteau, to the north of the appellation and surrounded by hills reaching 450m, it takes its name from the olive leaves’ extraordinary radiance during a full moon.

Julie Paolucci is the fifth generation at the domaine, she took the helm after her father’s sudden passing away. Before taking over the Domaine, Julie used to work as a sommelier in top Parisian restaurants. Her finely tuned palate produces balanced, clear cut wines with a mineral touch, and real ‘digestibilité’ helped by low levels of sulphur.

This wine is made from the oldest parcels of vines on the property – around 70 years old – and is a blend of 60% Grenache and 40% Carignan. It has spicy black fruits on the nose with notes of plum and blood orange on the palate. There are provencal herbs and a saline twist on the finish, all with fine-grained tannins. Unfined and lightly filtered.
