Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet

Herve Souhaut La Souteronne

  • Organic

Made from 100% Gamay grown on 50-80 year old vines on granite, the grapes are hand-harvested and sorted in the vineyard. After undergoing a long maceration without de-stemming, the wine is aged in secondhand oak casks and stainless steel tanks. The result is this beautiful wine with enticing aromas of strawberries, black cherry, plum, smoky herbs, and fig paste. Buoyant black fruit dominates the palate and is followed by pretty red berry tones, and minerality. The granite soil evokes something very familiar and Beaujolais-like, while cloaked under the influence of the Northern Rhone. Practicing Organic.

Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet

Winemaker Herve Souhaut created Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet in the hills of the northern Ardeche, in the town of Arlebosc. The winery is underneath the 16th century “Les Romaneaux” fortified farm and sits in the middle of the vines that make up the Souteronne, Syrah, and white cuvées. His philosophy is to extract a delicate balance of tannins from the grapes, to make a wine with subtlety and finesse. Practicing Organic.
