On a hillside directly opposite the famous Hermitage Hill in Saint Joseph, Hervé Souhaut makes wines that defy the stereotypes of the more traditional Rhône winemakers. A former chemist and his wife Béatrice, they produce wine made with minimal intervention but with maximum care and precision. Their wines are meant to be drunk young without that meaning they cannot age and become more complex. The grapes are harvested by hand and have minimal addition of sulphur, only during bottling. These cuvées express all the power and grace we expect from the Northern Rhône and thanks to Hervé’s commitment to balance in the vineyard and in the cellar, his wines have finesse and purity
