Hervé Souhaut Sainte Epine 2017
The Saint Epine vineyard is located right behind Hervé and Beatrice Souhaut's house in the village of Tourney. It lies on an extremely steep slope that is terraced with old rock walls. 100 + year-old vines.
The nose shows an explosion of spices, with notes of orange, anise and violets also being present. Baking spices carry on to a mineral-based palate wherehey meet red cherries and a big dose of black pepper. Great acidity gives the wine plenty of lift and leads to a long mineral and pepper finish. Will be great with a good cut of beef or juicy lamb.
