  • Soil Type: The vineyards from which this Syrah is sourced boast a mix of granite and schist, soils that are quintessential to the Northern Rhône area. This mineral-rich foundation contributes significantly to the wine's aromatic complexity and its distinctive peppery note, a hallmark of Syrah from this region.
  • Elevation: Situated at moderate elevations, the vineyards benefit from the cooling influence of the altitude, which is instrumental in preserving the grape's natural acidity and aromatic freshness. This elevation ensures a slow, even ripening process, crucial for developing the nuanced flavor profile of the wine.

  • Grape Variety: 100% Syrah, this wine showcases the varietal's classic characteristics with an emphasis on vibrancy and purity. Hervé Souhaut's approach to winemaking allows the intrinsic qualities of the Syrah grape to shine, presenting a wine that is both authentic and reflective of its origins.

  • Winemaking: In the cellar, Souhaut employs minimal interventionist techniques to preserve the natural character of the fruit. The wine undergoes fermentation with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tanks, ensuring a pure expression of the grape and the terroir. Aging is conducted in a combination of old barrels and stainless steel, to maintain the wine's freshness and vitality without imparting overt oak flavors.

  • Farming Practices: Hervé Souhaut is committed to biodynamic and organic farming practices, emphasizing a deep respect for the land and the ecosystem. This approach not only nurtures the vineyard's health but also enhances the wine's authenticity and connection to its terroir.

  • Tasting Notes: The 2022 Syrah is characterized by its exuberant fruitiness, with a bouquet bursting with fresh red and black berries, complemented by a subtle floral undertone and the varietal's signature spicy edge. On the palate, it is elegantly structured, with a harmonious balance between the juicy fruit flavors, refined tannins, and a lively acidity that leads to a clean, invigorating finish.

  • Pairing: This Syrah is exceptionally food-friendly, pairing well with a wide range of dishes. It complements the richness of grilled or roasted meats, the earthiness of wild mushrooms, and the savory depth of aged cheeses. Its versatility makes it an excellent choice for both casual gatherings and more formal dining occasions.
