Rasteau Villages Domaine La Soumade 2015

Product Description

"The superstar of Rasteau is Andre Romero who produces five Cuvees of drop-dead delicious red wine." Robert Parker

Andr‚ Romero is one of our most characterful and talented growers and a favourite. A love of wine, food and Marseille Football Club, shared with the leading restaurants in the region underline the character he is.
A visit chez Rom‚ro is a must. Dozens of some of the world's best wines line the shelves of his tasting room, wines he has enjoyed with his friends. The yields here are low - around 40 hl/ha for his C“tes du Rh“ne, 35 for the Villages and much less for his super cuv‚es (28 hl/ha in the 2005 vintage).

The grape mix is mainly Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, the proportions varying a little with each vintage. The grapes receive a cold maceration of around 4 days followed by a cuvaison of some 20 to 30 days depending on the Cuv‚e at a temperature of 32ø, coupled with a system of Burgundian pigeage inspired by Clos des Lambrays in Morey-Saint-Denis. The wine is then matured in cement tanks for one year before spending 6 months in a variety of oak: foudres, demi-muids and barriques.

The wines are fined with egg whites but receive no filtration. Andre loves Bordeaux and his Cabernet Sauvignon is a really gorgeous wine. He does not appreciate white wine and the Viognier and Roussanne are blended in with Syrah, for Les Violettes (as in C“te R“tie). Andr‚ is well known from Bordeaux, where he exchanges wines with the best of Grand Cru Class‚, to California where the top growers really appreciate his wines.

Andr‚ has built himself a new house or rather a large new cellar on top of which he lives! Everything is now temperature controlled and he is able to bottle all of a vintage when he wants and in one go.
His first vintage in the new winery was 2002, where he massively overachieved in that difficult vintage by picking a month later than most in the region.
