La Sauteronne Gamay

Domaine Herve Souhaut

2014

Ardeche

France

Vinification: Grapes are hand-harvested & undergo a very long maceration
at a low temperature—without de-stemming the fruit. The wine is
fermented in wooden tanks & aged on fine lees in secondhand oak casks
for eight months. The wine is bottled without filtration. Total SO2 is only 25
mg/L.
Tasting Note: Nearly purple in the glass with a garnet rim. The nose is an
enticing array of strawberry, black cherry, plum, fig paste, smoky herbs
and pounded stones. Buoyant black fruit dominates the palate and is
followed by pretty red berry tones, and smoky minerality that is framed by
a judicious note of wood. This is an elegant and dynamic old vines Gamay.
