70% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre
From another great vintage, this is bursting with rich dark fruit, spice and florals. Soumade are experts in their hometown of Rasteau, where the fruit ripens into expressive wines that massively over-deliver on the modest price. This is partly thanks to water-retaining clay soils which help vines in the Southern Rhone heat. This sees no oak, as per tradition, but is fully tank fermented to reveal the full force of that beautiful pure fruit extract…delicious!
89-92/100 Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2018 Vintage)
"I tasted samples of the 2018 Rasteau from four different tanks. It looks to boast juicy red fruit and supple tannins. Medium to full-bodied, it's almost quaffable already, with a long, briny finish. Drink 2020 – 2026."
