Wine Expert Note:

The Alain Jaume Domaine du Clos de Sixte is a remarkable wine that showcases the expertise and craftsmanship of the winemaker. On the nose, the wine offers a complex bouquet of ripe dark fruits, such as blackberries and plums, accompanied by hints of spices like black pepper and cloves. There are also subtle notes of garrigue, which add a touch of herbal freshness to the aroma. The palate is equally impressive, with a full-bodied and velvety texture that coats the mouth. The ripe fruit flavors continue to shine, with additional layers of black cherry and blueberry coming forward. The wine is well-balanced, with integrated tannins and a good level of acidity that provides structure and longevity. The Alain Jaume Domaine du Clos de Sixte has a long and elegant finish, leaving a lingering impression of dark fruits and spices. It is a wine that can be enjoyed now, but also has the potential to age gracefully for several years, allowing its flavors to further develop and evolve.

Expert Rating:
4.0
Alain Jaume Rasteau Les Valats, hailing from the northern Vaucluse region, boasts clay-limestone, stony slopes, and plateaus at medium altitudes, reaching up to 350 meters. The terroir, akin to Gigondas, induces a late grape ripening, fostering the development of concentrated, high-acid grapes crucial for producing wines of distinctive character. The poor soils and Mediterranean micro-climate contribute to the uniqueness of the wine. Rasteau earned Cru classification in 2009. The predominant grape is Grenache, complemented by Syrah and Mourvèdre. Following traditional vinification in concrete and stainless steel tanks, the wine undergoes elevage in tanks, and bottling occurs 10 to 12 months after harvest, resulting in a wine that beautifully captures the essence of its terroir.
