The Other Side of Souhaut:
2015 Souhaut Souteronne

Posted by Ian McFadden

Over the past two months, we’ve offered out a collection of Souhaut’s 2015 Syrahs.

Today, we turn our attention to Souhaut’s Gamay, La Souteronne.

All of our 2015 Souhaut offers have sold out quickly and we anticipate the same for today. Souhaut’s wines are gorgeously expressive and insanely delicious, but their fan club has grown outsized.

Souhaut’s Souteronne comes from 60 to 80 year old vines on schist soil in the Rhône. When you consider Souhaut’s use of semi-carbonic maceration and the Souteronne’s irresistible drinkability, the inescapable comparison is with Beaujolais. But there’s also a firm iron core, an energetic minerality and a savoriness that’s unmistakably reminiscent of Northern Rhône Syrah.

The 2015 Souteronne is one of the finest editions yet. 2015 was a really exciting vintage in Northern Rhône, and the wines show amazing vigor and vibrancy. The 2015s flaunt punch and snap, while possessing a penetrating depth and concentration.

The 2015 Souteronne is animated by vivid dark berry fruit, minerals, spice, and high-toned florals, all captured with incredible purity and precision. It’s wildly gulpable, with an energetic freshness and suave texture. It’s this combination of deliciousness and complexity that makes it one of the most captivating expressions of Gamay.

As we mentioned before, Souhaut is a small domaine with a very large following. Finding the wines in quantity can be a formidable task, and they always disappear quickly. They’re just that good.
