Buttery consistency with deep flavors — 4 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.

This is a lean, crisp, mineral-driven wine made from the Garganega grape. 💕 Its provenance is from Soave Classico DOC region of Veneto, Italy. 🇮🇹
It is light-bodied, youthful, and offers fresh stone fruit, such as tart peach 🍑 , apricot, also citrus, such as tangerine and lemon peel 🍋 along with baby's breath, dried herb, and saline 🐚 notes on the nose and palate. It also has notable inorganic notes such as wet slate. This wine is dry with medium acidity and alcohol. It has a medium finish.
It's an easy sipper. 👍👍 We're pairing this wine with a ricotta and spinach ravioli with a citrus dressing alongside sauteed shrimp and asparagus. It's going very nicely.

Lovely. SLH Chards are truly amazing specimens. Rich, vibrant expressions of provenance. Soft tropics. — 20 days ago
Interestingly perfumed nose with cotton candy and coconut oil (?) notes. Palate shows off chocolate, bing cherry and red licorice. Finish is a bit shorter than most wines from To Kalon but can’t argue with the value. — 2 months ago
