Importer Peter Weygandt calls Domaine des Aphillanthes perhaps his most remarkable find. And when you taste their rare Rasteau 1921 (the year the vines were planted), you’ll agree.

For purity, flavor and sheer ancient-vine Grenache beauty, this blows away just about any Chateauneuf-du-Pape at twice or more its price.

The “secret”? A great, steep, biodynamically farmed vineyard with both vineyard work (with horse drawn plows) and winemaking that could date back to the 1920s, too. And the yields here – only 7hl/ha – are the lowest I’ve ever heard of in the Rhone. (By comparison, the great old vintages of Rayas were about 20 hl/ha.)
