HERVÉ SOUHAUT SYRAH 2016 is available to buy in increments of 1

Syrah is, as the name would suggest, 100% Syrah, from Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet in Arlebosc, Ardèche.


Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet was started by vigneron Hervé Souhaut in 1993 with just 5 hectares between Northern Rhône and Southern Ardèche. Employing organics and natural winemaking philosophies to all his wines since day one, Hervé is one of the most respected winemakers in France and his simple, elegant labels are easily recognized.

Hervé’s wines are all cool-climate, high-altitude expressions from granite-heavy soils. Always picked early, they are deeply aromatic and expressive.  The fruit is hand harvested, using only whole bunches, and fermented long, cold and slow and matured on fine lees in aged oak barriques. All bottled without fining or filtration.


93/100 Jamie Goode, February 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"I’ve been an admirer of the wines of Hervé Souhaut for a while. I remember taking his Syrah as one of my three wines when I was taking part in the Swartland Revolution in 2011, and it went down really well. He’s based in the northern Ardèche, and this Syrah is made from his own and purchased grapes grown on granitic soils. It’s naturally made with a semi-carbonic (whole bunch) fermentation at low temperatures followed by ageing in used oak. Total SO2 level is around 25 mg/l, which is low.

What I love about this wine is that it is complex, yet smashable and low in alcohol (11.7%). It is also affordable. Picking early has resulted in a very supple, open wine with lovely aromatics and some delicious savouriness. It’s not a perfect wine, but it is perfectly imperfect.

This is supple and smashable. Meaty, spicy and bloody with peppery red berry fruits, fine herbs and some supple sappy green hints. Deliciously savoury and a bit reductive, and really repays decanting. This is a lovely wine that got finished pretty quickly."
