Birthday wine!!! Best example of 82 margaux I’ve tasted. Perfectly stored. Deep and dark mahogany color with minimal bricking. Absolutely beautiful nose of red currant, cassis, dried rose petals, pencil shavings, fresh green tobacco and cedar. Some noticeable green character and earthiness that is definitely ‘margaux’. We could not believe how young this still is. Provenance was perfect. Came out of an unbroken owc. Elegant yet powerful at the same time. Could easily last another 20 years yet so beautiful on its (and my) 39th bday. — 21 days ago
Although this Hervé Souhaut wine is made from the Gamay grape, it isn’t a Beaujolais. ☝️ Rather, it’s from the Rhône Valley of France, produced from land in the hills of the Northern Ardeche near the appellation of St. Joseph, which is famous for its Syrah-focused red wines. 🇫🇷 🍇
👁 This unfiltered and organically-produced wine is pale purple with pink rim variation and noticeable haze.
👃 On the nose this wine has a medium intensity of youthful aromas that include ripe red cherry, 🍒 bright raspberry, banana, wild strawberry, 🍓 dried lavender, cinnamon, crushed stone, and ever-so-delicate savory and meaty notes.
👄 On the palate this wine is dry; it has medium acidity, a medium body, medium alcohol, medium tannins, and medium intensity in youthful flavors consistent with the nose.
👏 This is the definition of an easy-drinking, gulpably delicious, and food-favorable wine. We are loving the layers of this wine that may be mistakable for a Beaujolais but for the delicate nuances most likely attributable its Rhône Valley provenance.
Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet, La Souteronne, 2018, 12.5% ABV, Vin de Pays, Rouge made from Gamay.
