Domaine Charavin Rasteau

The lighter colour of Domaine Charavin Rasteau belies the complexity in the glass. There is a simple spicy red fruit nose, but the palate is far more intriguing and shows dry red fruit flavours with earthy meaty edges, lots to get your teeth into yet well-balanced.

Didier Charavin

Didier Charavin is proving to be one of the stalwarts of this region. He produces a wonderful classical wine that is textbook for the region. His wife appears to be the powerhouse of the couple, dealing with the business side, which is very common in French viticulture. Didier, on the other hand, concentrates on the job at hand and devotes himself to his vines and wines.


Ambitious is a word regularly used to describe Didier, and this shows in his decision to make his own wine after taking over the reins from his father in 1985. He has since built a solid reputation for well-made, powerful and Chateauneuf-du-Pape like wines for a fraction of the price.

Domaine Charavin

In a dominant Mediterranean climate, the vineyard enjoys warm and sunny days, and is balanced by seasonal rains and the influence of the mistral. The grape varieties used for this appellation are dominated by Grenache (40% minimum) for reds and rosés, Syrah being also very present throughout the southern part. Many complementary grape varieties ( Cinsault , Carignan , Counoise , Muscardin , Vaccarèse , Terret , etc.) can respond to local soil and climate problems, En savoir plus :
