Château de Ségriès Côtes du Rhône 2010
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
Very interesting nose on this Rhone. Well balanced and more towards the body we prefer in a French red. $12.95 VW
User tags are accurate. An excellent value buy at $10-12.
Fruity and light, this wine is delicious on its own or with light appetizers.
All about raspberry and spice. Light grenachey wine with a hit of residual sugar at the front palate
Solid, basic, medium, work-horse of a wine. You like Rhone reds? You'll like this. It's got your cherry (not too much), it's got your earth (not too much), it's got your licorice (not too much). It goes well with pasta, black bean egg noodles, flat iron steak and chocolate. I guess that means it's versatile. I paid $15 for it, would do so again, but if I could find it for $12 I'd throw a case or two in the garage.
Needs coaxing in the mouth but is a quaffing wine that is food friendly and mellow enough to drink with just about anything. Probably needed to be opened a few years earlier but decent wine for it's approachability and mature fruit and earthy soil rich flavors of fruit and some type mellow tannins. A little aroma of leather and spice.
External Reviews for Château de Ségriès Côtes du Rhône
Pale red. Red berry and cherry aromas are strongly accented by smoky herbs, anise and lavender. Round and juicy, offering intense bitter cherry and raspberry flavors and a late note of peppery spices. In a rich, classic Tavel style but quite lively, finishing with impressive power and lingering spiciness.
As always, their Tavel Rose is a winner. The 2012, a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Clairette and 5% Syrah, is a delightful, fragrant, medium-bodied, dry rose displaying lots of garrigue, pepper and white currant notes intermixed with kirsch and raspberry fruit. Drink this complex rose over the next several years.
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 2010 Cotes du Rhone red, which is made from 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah and the rest Cinsault and Carignan, with 90% aged in tank and 10% in barrel, displays the vintagersquo;s opulence. Loads of licorice, roasted herbs, sweet black cherries and damp earth intermixed with notions of pepper and spice are present in this medium-bodied, exuberant, ebullient, fruit-driven Cotes du Rhone. It should drink nicely for 2ndash;3 years. The new releases from proprietor Henri de Lanzac are all impressive.
Great deal in Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne! Robust Syrah blended with the bright, red raspberry flavors of Grenache, producing a succulent, medium-bodied red that matches perfectly with an array of dishes from Cornish hens and mushroom risotto to salmon and cheese fondue. Brings a wonderful warmth to the table on cold winter days.
This has been an up-and-coming estate over the last 6ndash;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.
The 2007 Côtes du Rhône, 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 wine's sweet tannins along with good purity and ripeness are characteristics of this wonderful vintage. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
