Critic Reviews:
"A real sleeper and a brilliant wine from the oldest vines of the estate is the 2006 Rasteau Cuvée Prestige. This wine is clearly dominated by its Grenache with notes of chocolate, kirsch, liquorice as well as pepper and spice. This wine has great fruit, full body and a sumptuous texture. Totally irresistible." 92/100 (Wine Advocate)
