External Reviews for Château de Segries Lirac
Who doesnrsquo;t love Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;nes? Theyrsquo;re robust and full-bodied, yet naturally lower in tannin than Bordeaux. Theyrsquo;re food-friendly, yet fruity enough to be enjoyed on their own. Best of all, many can be had for less than $15! And the Chateau Segries is a perfect specimen of all these values mdash; a truly excellent wine for when you just donrsquo;t know what you want.
The 2006 Cotes du Rhone, primarily Grenache (50%) and the balance 30% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, and 10% Carignan, is richly fruity, peppery, spicy, with copious black and red fruit and garrigue, this medium-bodied wine is best consumed 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 1ndash;2 years.
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.
As for the reds, the peppery, spicy, earthy 2003 Cocirc;tes du Rhocirc;ne 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 2ndash;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.
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.
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 wine is ripe, rich and round, with black raspberry, white pepper and spice flavors. True Cotes du Rhone in a Bistro style.
