2002 Domaine la Soumade "Cuvée Confiance" Rasteau

SKU #1013930

According to Robert Parker: "Well worth a visit, Domaine La Soumade has moved into new, stylish cellars on a lower ridge below the old town of Rasteau. In 2002, the famed Bordeaux winemaking guru, Stephane Derenoncourt, was brought in as a consultant. Great news, although it’s hard to believe Andre Romero can improve on what he’s doing. Readers should not forget that this is one cellar where the 2002s were among the finest wines I tasted. While there will be no Fleur de Confiance, the Cuvee Confiance is one of the few 2002 southern Rhones that might merit a score in the upper eighties after bottling - a major achievement." (02/04) K&L's notes - I’m as guilty as the next guy. It is all too easy to write off a wine by just looking at its vintage. 2002 in the Rhône immediately made me think of rain. Rain brings dilution and rot, a duo that the best winemakers have a hard time dealing with. Then it dawned on me who made these wines, Domaine Soumade, concentration is never been an issue with them. If there was a farmer/winemaker who was up to the challenges of the 2002 vintage it surely was André Romero. (Kirk Walker, K&L)
