Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet (Hervé Souhaut) 2018 Blanc, Collines Rhodanniennes, Rhône Valley, France

Farming: Practicing Organic

Winemaker/Chef du Cave
: Hervé Souhaut

 Hervé Souhaut created Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet in 1993. Hervé works 5 hectares of old & ancient vines – 50-100 years-old—located on the right bank of the Rhône Valley just opposite the storied hills of Hermitage. This region is widely recognized as being one of the finest areas for wine production on the planet; thanks in part to its elevation, steep slopes, ancient vineyard sites & the southeastern & southern exposures. 

Grape Varieties: 70% Viognier, 30% Roussanne

Soils: 10 to 100 Years vines planted in the Cordon de Royat style on Schist 

Vinification: Grapes are hand-harvested and undergo a very  long maceration at a low temperature—without destemming the fruit. The  wine is fermented in wooden tanks and aged on fine lees in second-hand  oak casks for eight months. The wine is bottled without filtration. The  wine has a total SO2 of only 25mg/L. 

Tasting Notes: Golden straw in the glass with lovely scents of white  flowers, tropical fruit, wet stones and notes of oak. The palate is  supple with loads of pear and fig flavors that are backed by elegant  mineral notes. Moderate acidity, apple preserves and a warm note of oak  lingers on the finish.
