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 Chateau de Segries Cotes du Rhone
Tavel rosés are made in the tiny, sleepy village of the same name, less than 10 miles southwest and across the river from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Nine Rhône grapes (both red and white) can be used in the winemaker's blend. Grenache and Cinsault being the primary grapes used. Despite its pretty ruby color, this is a wine that is rugged, robust and spicy. Incredibly fresh and bright, it has flavors of raspberries, cherries and wild herbs. Bone dry, it has an appealing roughness, an edge that makes it perfect for washing down dishes laden with garlic, olive oil and fresh herbs.
We insist you try this wine. Really. From the region of Tavel in France's Rhône Valley, famed for its delicious rosés, comes a top-quality blend of mainly Grenache and Cinsault. Herbal notes and dry grass on the nose, crisp minerality along with bright watermelon and strawberry on the palate, and a strong, fruity finish. Excellent value from a top producer.
A ripe, mouthfilling style, displaying ebullient black cherry and red currant fruit backed by a lingering, spice-filled finish. This has power, but stays fresh. Drink now.
An absolutely brilliant dry rose, and an unexpected value, especially from the prestigious rose village of Tavel, is the 2010 Tavel Rose, a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault and the rest Clairette and Syrah. The wine displays plenty of raspberry and strawberry fruit, super aromatics that engulf the taster, and a medium-bodied, zesty yet authoritatively flavored mouthfeel. Drink it over the next year. The color is a light, vibrant pink. The new releases from proprietor Henri de Lanzac are all impressive.
The brilliant 2008 Tavel (50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Clairette, and 5% Syrah) is a big-boned, brawny, dry rosé with plenty of flavor. It cuts a savory, heady feel across the palate. Enjoy it over the next 8-12 months.
Perhaps the finest dry rosé we've ever tasted, this one's 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Clairette and 5% Syrah. Long and ripe, with bracing acidity that carries the long finish.
A powerful and focused Rosé, with a big core of red cherry, raspberry and red currant fruit laced with spice and tobacco hints. A nice stony note weaves in on the finish, adding length and cut. Drink now.
