Château de Ségriès:
In 1994, Henri de Lanzac, cousin of Christophe Delorme from Domaine de la Mordorée, purchased the Domaine and began to improve the quality of the wine. "Ségriès" in provencal means "water spring". This family owned and operated winery is located in Lirac and produces some of the best values in my portfolio. They produce the following A.O.C. wines: * Tavel Rosé * Côtes du Rhône Rouge * Lirac Rouge * Lirac Blanc
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

The dense ruby/purple-colored 2001 Lirac Cuvée Réservée possesses acidity and sweet fruit. It offers plenty of purity, zesty acidity, and a cooler-climate personality (September was cold throughout France).

The 1999 Cuvée Reservée (check out the terrific label) displays a dense dark ruby color in addition to gobs of Provençal herb-infused, black cherry and kirsch liqueur notes. It also has a creamy, juicy, succulent texture, and a spicy, ripe, medium-bodied finish. There are no hard edges to this richly fruity, complex wine. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

This ripe red shows a slightly raisined edge to its linzer torte, plum sauce and crushed cherry fruit. Licorice and spice notes mark the lightly firm finish. Drink now through 2012.

This is a wonderful Rhocirc;ne blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 5% Mourvegrave;dre and 5% Carignan from 40 year old vines. A deep crimson color is followed by blueberry and forest aromas. Upon the palate are lusty flavors of black cherry and black pepper. The wine is muscular yet balanced, with a long lasting finish. Have a nice juicy steak with this one!

A great value, the excellent 2003 Lirac Cuvee Reservee is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Syrah, and equal parts Mourvedre and Carignan. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of raspberries, black currants, licorice, and earth. Medium to full-bodied and fruit-driven, with abundant glycerin, heady alcohol, and a spicy finish, it should drink well for 4ndash;5 years.

More serious, structured, and meaty is the 2009 Lirac Cuvee Reservee. Fifty percent Grenache, 30% Syrah and the rest Cinsault, Mourvedre and Carignan, this has more earthy, foresty notes, an opaque ruby/purple color, hints of incense, blue and black fruits, medium body and light to moderate tannin in the finish. It is just becoming drinkable yet should age reasonably well for 5-7 years. The new releases from proprietor Henri de Lanzac are all impressive.

Very fresh, with nice plum and black cherry fruit laced with violet and tobacco notes. Drink now through 2010.
