Habit-Forming Northern Rhône Part Two
2014 Souhaut Souteronne

A month ago we offered Souhaut's Syrah and St. Joseph. The response was huge.

It's nice to see word getting out on how delicious and simply good these wines are.

Souteronne is Gamay from the Rhône from 60 to 80 year old vines. Souhaut uses a semi-carbonic maceration. The inescapable comparison is with Beaujolais. The Souteronne shares the irresistible drinkability that you find in many Beaujolais, but the two start to part ways from there.

Souteronne has an edgy and energetic acidity along with a stern stony core and a meatiness similar to what you find in Northern Rhône Syrah. There's lots of floral notes with dark berry fruit and spice.

I don't want to drag this out, because this is a joyously delicious wine. It's' also a fascinating take on Gamay. It's very much worth having on hand in quantity, which is why we created special 4-pack pricing.
