The superstar of Rasteau is Andre Romero who produces five cuvees of drop-dead delicious red wine. He fashions full-throttle, concentrated, exuberant wines that mirror his over-the-top personality. Few vignerons are more interesting to visit than Domaine La Soumade. Rasteau is a village with some incredible terroirs as well as a high percentage of old vine Grenache. Romero makes a bevy of Vin de Pays offerings, but his finest cuvees are his Cotes du Rhone and Rasteau wines. St.-Emilion's guru, Stephane Derenoncourt is the consulting winemaker, which may help explain why these wines are so good.Robert Parker. An organic regime is adhered to in the vineyard, and the wines are bottled without fining or filtration. 80% Grenache, 20% Syrah. Fine, bright ruby. Open and appealing aromas of violets, with a hint of tar. Silky texture, with lifted, ripe red and black fruits, very supple, with a twist of ripe tannin on the finish. Velvety and appealing.
