Château de Ségriès Lirac Cuvée Réservée 2007

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

A great value, the excellent 2003 Lirac Cuvee Reservee is a blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Syrah, and equal parts Mourvedre and Carignan. A deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by aromas of raspberries, black currants, licorice, and earth. Medium to full-bodied and fruit-driven, with abundant glycerin, heady alcohol, and a spicy finish, it should drink well for 4-5 years.

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 1999 Cuvée Reservée (check out the terrific label) displays a dense dark ruby color in addition to gobs of Provençal herb-infused, black cherry and kirsch liqueur notes. It also has a creamy, juicy, succulent texture, and a spicy, ripe, medium-bodied finish. There are no hard edges to this richly fruity, complex wine. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.

The dense ruby/purple-colored 2001 Lirac Cuvée Réservée possesses acidity and sweet fruit. It offers plenty of purity, zesty acidity, and a cooler-climate personality (September was cold throughout France).

A brilliant wine, the 2007 Lirac Cuvee Reservee red requires another 6andndash;12 months of bottle age. A combination of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, and the rest Cinsault, Mourvedre, and Carignan, it exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue as well as a big, bold aromatic display of fresh mushrooms, tree bark, blueberries, and black cherries. Deep, textured, full-bodied, powerful, and muscular with some tannin to shed, this offering should be forgotten for a year or so, and consumed over the following decade.

This ripe red shows a slightly raisined edge to its linzer torte, plum sauce and crushed cherry fruit. Licorice and spice notes mark the lightly firm finish. Drink now through 2012.

Very fresh, with nice plum and black cherry fruit laced with violet and tobacco notes. Drink now through 2010.
