"Located on steep, south-facing slopes and mostly clay soils, Rasteau produces deep, concentrated wines that have distinct minerality to go with savory, chocolaty, earthy aromatics. While most drink well on release, the best can easily keep for 10-15 years. It’s worth pointing out that while the region was known in the past for making more rustic, alcoholic wines, that’s no longer the case, and the wines today show much more polish, elegance, and balance. The top wines are a match for anything coming out of the Southern Rhône Valley today."
– Jeb Dunnuck

Dunnuck designates the top seven domaines of Rasteau, La Soumade among them along with three other properites we work with. Don't miss Fleur de Confiance that Wine Advocate writer Joe Czerwinski declared "the most impressive Rasteau to have ever passed these lips."

There's a lifted, slightly herbal component to the nose of the 2018 Gigondas. Set against the red raspberry and redcurrant fruit, it accentuates the sense of freshness. The wine is medium to full-bodied, with a taut, tension-filled palate and silky, slightly astringent tannins on the finish. Give it another year or two in the cellar, then drink it over the next several years after that.

90 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate (Nov 2020)
