Founded in 1993 by Hervé Souhaut and his wife Béatrice, the Domaine Romaneaux Destezet is located in the northern part of the Rhône Valley in the pleasant village of Arlebosc. The production of this winery is entirely natural and is divided between the vineyards of the Ardèche near the winery and the prestigious sites in the heart of the Saint Joseph appellation at the Hermitage. The varieties are the traditional ones of the region such as Syrah, Marsanne, Viognier, Roussanne, Gamay, as well as some rows of Merlot. The total vineyard heritage is about 5 hectares with some vines that are over 100 years old. The sustainable agronomic approach in the vineyard is followed in the cellar with spontaneous vinification after the exclusive use of indigenous yeasts, with an almost zero use of sulfur dioxide, and by slow refinements in steel cuve and used wood. The result is wines of marked drinkability, elegance and gustatory dynamics, capable of translating the most intimate characteristics of this extraordinary terroir into the glass.
The vinification takes place through spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts and the refinement takes place in old barrels. A serving temperature between 16 and 20°C is recommended
Intense ruby red color with dark notes. The power of the syrah manifests itself in a subtle way, leaving room for the fruity and floral flavors that outline the sip. This wine is beautiful, velvety and enveloping, but at the same time it has a marked freshness that makes it even more irresistible.
Perfect with grilled red meats, aged cheeses and game dishes. It also goes well with game dishes, such as wild boar, and spicy dishes.
