Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

Rasteau grenat (VDN), Domaine du Trapadis (50 cl) - 2018

It is not well known, but historically, the wines that made the reputation of Rasteau were sweet wines, made by mutage! Helen Durand's wine is exquisite, with an intense colour, notes of black berries (blueberry, blackcurrant) and flowers (violet). On the palate, it surprises with its finesse, its natural expression and its greediness, with this fruit coulis side. The peppery finish is irresistible!

Clay-limestone soil, located on the slopes, yellow marl facing south-west. The vines are 25 years old and are pruned in cordon de Royat. Planting density 3'500 vines per hectare. Yield: 20 hl per hectare. The vineyard is cultivated without weed killers, chemical fertilisers and synthetic products. Only simple substances (sulphur, copper) in low doses are used. The soil is fertilized with animal and vegetable compost. Six ploughings are carried out during the year (hoeing). Yields are controlled by short pruning, two disbudding operations and removal of bunches on young vines. A light leaf removal and thinning of the bunches are carried out at the beginning of September.


The harvest is manual and carefully sorted. The grapes are 50% destemmed and then crushed. A light extraction is carried out by punching down the cap every 3 days. Vatting lasts 20 days, including 14 days of maceration under alcohol at a temperature not exceeding 25°C. Maturation is carried out on the grapes with neutral alcohol from the marc at 96°, at a density of 1045, i.e. 100g of residual sugar /l. The sweet natural wine is matured in vats on fine lees, 10% of which is in one-wine barrels for 11 months. The blending and bottling are done at the beginning of September.

Situé à Rasteau, le domaine du Trapadis cultive 32 hectares de vignes sur plusieurs AOP dont celle qui porte le nom du village ; mais également Cairanne et Roeix. C’est Césaire Brun, l’arrière-grand-père d’Helen Durand, et Théophile Chavarin, son second arrière-grand-père, qui possédaient le domaine en 1850. En 1942, grâce au mariage d’Henriette Brun et de René Chavarin, le domaine fut unifié. En 1990, Helen Durand, leur fils, commercialisa ses premières bouteilles à l’âge de 16 ans ! Le nom Trapadis signifie « trou » en provençal et fait écho à la galerie souterraine creusée dans la parcelle des grenaches plantés en 1922, là où naît la source qui alimente le hameau. Helen Durand cultive la vigne en mode biologique et privilégie les maturités croquantes, loin de tout fruit confituré, pour signer des vins aromatiques, frais, exempts de boisé afin de révéler au mieux ses terroirs de Côtes-du-Rhône Villages. Ne manquez pas aussi le blanc et également le Rasteau muté, qui est une véritable gourmandise.
