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
External Reviews for Château de Ségriès Côtes du Rhône
This has been an up-and-coming estate over the last 6-7 years. The medium-bodied 2003 Cotes du Rhone exhibits more kirsch liqueur characteristics, along with a denser mid-palate and headier finish. It should be consumed over the next two years.
As for the reds, the peppery, spicy, earthy 2003 Côtes du Rhône reveals a dark ruby color, medium body, and pretty flavors. While it does not have the depth and substance of the 2001, it is a well-made, slightly tannic red to consume over the next 2-3 years. This large, 108-acre estate was long in the doldrums, but the quality over recent vintages has been top-notch. Moreover, the wines sell for a song, so bargain hunters have been beating a path to their door since the late nineties.
A tribute to the intense summer heat of the vintage, this wine bursts from the glass with extraordinarily ripe aromas and flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, raspberry and spices.
The brilliant 2007 vintage makes this old friendrsquo;s star really shine with loads of red and black fruits, ample body and texture, and a peppery and spicy finish.
The 2007 Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne, a blend of 50% Grenache and the rest mostly Syrah with small amounts of Cinsault and Carignan, offers plenty of earth, lavender, pepper, raspberry, and kirsch notes. The winersquo;s sweet tannins along with good purity and ripeness are characteristics of this wonderful vintage. Drink it over the next 2ndash;3 years.
The crisp, elegant 2004 Cotes du Rhone (a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and equal parts Cinsault and Carignan) displays good acidity, medium body, and a peppery, spicy, strawberry and cherry-tinged personality. Enjoy it over the next 1-2 years.
Very fresh, with nice plum and black cherry fruit laced with violet and tobacco notes. Drink now through 2010.
