We have been aware of André Roméro's Rasteau reds from Domaine La Soumade for a while, but only first offered the 2020s en primeur late last year. The wines are remarkable for their savoury character and elegance, in a region which can produce wines with hot or confected fruit.
The 2020s are due later in the year, but in the meantime, we have secured a parcel of their 2019s, in bottle and in bond, ready to enjoy over the autumn and for many years ahead.
Soumade's various cuvées express their terroirs beautifully. Enjoyable when young, the wines can also be forgotten about in the back of your cellar for a decade or two, then delight you with their rich secondary fruit and developed aromas (we have recently been enjoying some bin-ends of the 2007 domaine wine...stupendous, but all gone, before you ask!). All this, with prices starting at just £115 per dozen in bond (equivalent to £14.18 per bottle with all taxes) when you order 2+ cases.
Read more about the domaine below, or simply e-mail us by return if you would like to order.
Offered in bond, available September 2022
