We’ve tasted this
Domaine la Soumade's André Roméro is a great winemaker (described as the superstar of Rasteau by wine critic Robert Parker), add the expertise of renowned consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt and some top quality vineyard sites and you have a recipe for success. This Grenache dominated entry level village Rasteau delivers in leaps and bounds. The vines are only treated, natural fertiliser added, when absolutely necessary and the grapes are hand picked and then hand sorted so only the best make it through. The wine matures in concrete for a year and then in a range of oak barrels for six months before being lightly filtered.
The nose is intoxicating with perfumed aromas of sweet red and brambly fruits leading onto a full, rich, silky palate with hints of methanol and a nice spicy kick. There is a lovely freshness to the wine, it is balanced and the length is long.
A fantastic wine from a fantastic vintage.
