Rasteau Domaine La Font de Notre Dame comes from a small Domaine, based at the foot of the Dentelles de Montmiral and run by two brothers, Frédéric and Boris Roux. A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre with concentrated ripe bramble fruits, subtle peppery spice and herbal notes.

Elvated to 'Cru' status in 2010, Rasteau’s vineyards are relatively sheltered from the Mistral wind. The south-facing vineyards enjoy over 2800 sunshine hours a year, meaning that the warm and dry Mediterranean climate makes it home to some of the most intense and spiciest reds in the South. At the heart of the Domaine, is a small fountain that was once a place of pilgrimage for the Provençale people in the Middle Ages, who believed its waters could protect them from the Black Death. The winery maintains its rustic charm and uses eight traditional concrete 20hl vats. Made of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre and a hint of Cinsault, this wine is fermented in traditional concrete vats, followed by 12 months maturation in French oak barrels.
