Galvin Rasteau, Côtes du Rhône Villages, Domaine La Soumade 2010
Rich tasting Rhône red with ripe, velvety fruit flavours of dark plum, black cherry and spices. André Romero and his son Frédéric make a marvellous, small range of powerful yet elegantly structured wines at Domaine La Soumade which lies on the edge of the village of Rasteau, one of the best sources for red wines in the Southern Rhône. This wine is made predominantly with the spicy warming flavours of the Grenache grape along with a small proportion of Syrah and Mourvèdre. Its powerful ripe fruit and concentrated flavours are a great match for strong flavoured dishes.
