Domaine la Soumade Côtes du Rhône 2020
The Domaine la Soumade Côtes du Rhône is a red wine blend of Grenache (80%) and Syrah (20%). The domaine practice agriculture “raisonée” in all of their vineyards, only treating the vines where absolutely necessary, in order to maximise the terroir. Organic compost is applied when soil deficiencies are revealed, following analysis of the vines. When climatic conditions dictate they use organically permitted treatments (sulphur and copper) to protect the vines from mildew. The domaine has partnered with consultant Stéphane Derenoncourt and together they have fine tuned the style of wines made here, leading them in softer, smoother, spicier and more complex directions.
