Soul of Le Soula

The brainchild of two UK-based wine importers in Roy Richards and Mark Walford, in partnership with Rousillon revolutionary Gerard Gauby of the legendary Domaine Gauby, Le Soula has very quickly become one of the most important wine estates of Southern France. The idiosyncratic estate is nestled in the Agly Valley, in a region more known for its sweet and fortified wines. But with the help of veteran sommelier and vigneron Wendy Paillé, the forward-thinking partners have turned the estate into something more. With their biodynamic approach to farming and attention to detail in the winemaking process, the high altitude terroir of the Fenouillèdes is brilliantly on display and the estate produces wines that are simply at the top of their class. The unique blend, changing every vintage, and policy of not releasing wines until they are deemed to be ready means that there’s always something exciting on the way from Le Soula, and this release is a brilliant chance to sample some of the range.

This is a 6-pack. This case contains 2 bottles of each wine:

Le Soula Lot XX Trigone Blanc // Languedoc‐Roussillon, France

Winemaker Notes

Once more, no press is available. This is a full bodied, exotic white, with freshness and minerality complimenting the texture that the wine possesses. This is a delicious and forward white to have with rich seafood dishes, white meats, and aged cheeses. Lovers of full bodied and complex white wines will find a lot to enjoy with this.

Enticing richness of aromas, including citrus, pears and almonds. Complex, fresh and precise attack with a lovely acidity in the mid-palate, with notes of citrus, pears and white flowers. Interesting complexity in the finish.

Le Rosé 2020 du Soula // Languedoc‐Roussillon, France

This wine’s rarity unfortunately means that there is little press and no reviews available. This is a darker style of rose composed of 100% Syrah, that is more full bodied than a typical pale style. It is textural and has a dense fruited quality to it, with savoury notes of smoke and pepper to complement them. Think of this as more of a red wine for drinking cold, have it with a hearty meal, and enjoy!

Winemaker Notes

100% Syrah. Ripe red apples, candied apple & cherry on the nose. Hints of smoke and pepper. Lovely texture, almost voluptuous.

Le Soula 2012 Rouge // Languedoc‐Roussillon, France

17/20 Tamlyn Currin (Jancis Robinson)

Gentle tamarind nose, the deep, woodsy, earthy nose pulling into the palate, long and defiant and far from easy. Almost Pinot-Noir-like. Truffle savoury. No ripeness to smudge the taut, nervous sinews of the tannins or the close-to-shrill piercing cut of acidity. If ever a wine issued a challenge, this is it. It doesn't even dare you to like it; but it does dare you to come close. On day five, it smelt of sous bois and bruised wild cherries. Dried game and porcini mushrooms. Tracing-paper-fine tannins and fruit. This is a wine that, in a room full of people, would sit quietly in the corner, watching. You would need to search it out, maybe on the terrace outside, in the dark, the buzz and light of the dinner party several feet away; you would need to stand beside it for a while, looking at the stars together, and maybe neither of you would say anything. But then you would learn something about it.
