2009 Domaine Soumade Rasteau Prestige

The yields at this excellent domaine are always low generally 35 hl/ha ( which is tiny ) for their Villages Wines and much less for his super cuvees. The grape mix is mainly Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre, with the proportions varying a little each vintage. Few vignerons are more interesting to visit than Domaine La Soumade’s Andre Romero, whose wines are longtime reference points for the wines of Rasteau, a village with some incredible terroirs as well as a high percentage of old vine Grenache. The 2009 Cotes du Rhone-Villages Rasteau Cuvee Prestige reveals abundant garrigue and black cherry notes intermixed with notions of licorice, earth and spice. Full, rich, supple-textured and relatively evolved, this classic Rasteau possesses heady alcohol, a big, bold, exuberant mouthfeel, and a succulent finish. It should drink nicely for 7-8 years. 91/100 Parker
