Description

André Romero founded Domaine Soumade in 1979 and is now considered perhaps the finest producer in the region. The village of Rasteau was elevated to AOC status alongside Châteauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas in 2010, and we find that while the styles are similar the clay - limestone soils produce more freshness in Rasteau than the other two. A new modern winery was built in 2002, the same year they started to work with consultant, Stéphane Derenoncourt of Bordeaux fame, and he encouraged to adopt gentler and more finely-tuned vinification techniques, to better reflect the unique expression and potential of our terroir. The estate covers 26 hectares in the commune of Rasteau and an additional hectare in Gigondas.

Domaine La Soumade devotes its oldest vines from 50-100 years old to this blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre. Vinified entirely in large-format wood vessels, its black plum and cherry flavors are lusciously concentrated but maintain a zestiness and mineral edge that are thrilling. Full bodied and opulent, it's a velveteen, solidly structured red that should drink beautifully now–2030.
