The Wines of Herve Souhaut
the interesting wines of Herve Souhaut by my buddy Eric at Le Caveau Fine Wines. Souhaut makes wine under the Domaine Romaneaux-Destezet lavel from old vines in the northern Rhone Valley, in area that is widely accepted as being having some of the best soil for wine-making in Europe. The wines are produced by hand, naturally and organically, with no added sulfur or chemical treatments. The wines can be drinkable young, but they show their best stuff after a few years of bottle age. The white wine pictured above is mostly Roussane with a little Viognier in the mix. This one is especially drinkable now, though a little age certainly won't hurt.
