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

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.

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.

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.

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.

This dry rosé is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Clairette, and Syrah. Red wine lovers will appreciate the complexity of flavors including Provencal flowers, herbs, and a touch of whole grain mustard. At 14% alcohol it is not a lightweight, but the Grenache definitely shows through with a lot of fruit, almost like creamy bubble gum. Summer fare such as fried chicken and potato salad will shine alongside this wine. No matter your preference for red or white, give this a try, well-chilled, and realize that wine is for all of us.

The excellent 2003 Tavel rosé is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Clairette, and 5% Syrah. It possesses a light ruby color as well as elegant strawberry and cherry flavors with hints of pit fruit and spice. Enjoy it over the next year. 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 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.
