Dominated by Grenache, this Cru Cotes du Rhone is wonderfully ripe, fresh, juicy and succulent, with both red and black fruit flavours. It’s tannic on the finish, but also has plenty of freshness to add a bit of balance.

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!

Roméro founded the domaine in 1979 and was joined by his son Frédéric in 1996, on completion of his oenology studies. Today the estate covers 26 hectares, including a new plot of 2.5 hectares of the finest land in Rasteau – pure ‘Argile bleue’ with 60 year old vines.

At Soumade the grape mix is mainly Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, with a little of the aromatic white Viognier, which is blended into the reds in the style of Cote Rotie. Low yields and and mixture of Bordeaux and Burgundian influenced cellar techniques give wines which are characterised by a marked succulence of fruit and a delightful dark-chocolate richness.
