2019 Rasteau 'Cuvée Confiance', Domaine la Soumade
Available En Primeur
More syrah than their Village cuvée gives a richer, fruity nose and palate. This wine is matured in 4000-litre wooden foudres and comes from older vines in the best plots, as befits their best wine. Full-bodied and complex on the palate, dark and red fruits, cinnamon and a little spice, and a nice long finish.
Domaine la Soumade is a lovely terracotta winery surrounded by vineyards between Rasteau village and Orange. All the grapes are picked by hand for quality and gentle handling. At home, I am currently broaching their 2013 and 2014s, also bought en primeur: they are delicious (despite these not being great vintages) and will keep for a few more years yet. So from an excellent vintage as 2019, these wines will keep easily 10 years, possibly 15 for the Confiance.
