Herve Souhaut Syrah 2010

Member Review by Bob Fyke:

86 Points:Popped and poured. The nose, at first, is bold with lots of black pepper, blackberry, some mint, and coffee. Initially, the palate seemed to be on par with the magnitude of the nose, with nice dried herbs, and a tobacco note, but this faded quickly, leaving little character. There was a surprising frizzante element as well that persisted. The finish was flat, lacking much in the way of acid or tannins.

The Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet was created in 1993 by Herve Souhaut. It was constituted progressively with the years by the plantation of new vines and the successive purchases of various and often old vines (from 50 to 100 years old).The current surface of the Domaine is 5 ha. An additional activity of purchase of grapes makes it to-day possible to reach a total annual production of approximately 25.000 bottles. The type of vines used are of local origin and representative of the Northern Rhone valley : Viognier and Roussanne for the white wines, Syrah and Gamay for the red wines .Geologically, the soil is consisted of a strong acidic granite (base hercynien, crystalline lens). Sensitive from the very start of his activity by the need for maturing wines the most natural way possible in order to express the potential of the soil, Herve Souhaut moved towards the production of grapes resulting from a respect for the environment and for the agriculture. But convinced that one should not stop at this stage, he decided, under the impulse of wine grower followers of the natural wine making and helped by his training as a biologist, to produce wines without additive. Located on the right bank of the Rhone valley, opposite the Hermitage Hills. This soil has always been recognized as being one of the best areas for wine production, thanks to it’s south-eastern and southern exposure and to the hot climate of the Doux river delta. Read less
