Château de Ségriès Lirac Cuvée Réservée 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

More serious, structured, and meaty is the 2009 Lirac Cuvee Reservee. Fifty percent Grenache, 30% Syrah and the rest Cinsault, Mourvedre and Carignan, this has more earthy, foresty notes, an opaque ruby/purple color, hints of incense, blue and black fruits, medium body and light to moderate tannin in the finish. It is just becoming drinkable yet should age reasonably well for 5-7 years. The new releases from proprietor Henri de Lanzac are all impressive.

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

A brilliant wine, the 2007 Lirac Cuvee Reservee red requires another 6–12 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.

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

This is a wonderful Rhandocirc;ne blend of 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 5% Mourvandegrave;dre and 5% Carignan from 40 year old vines. A deep crimson color is followed by blueberry and forest aromas. Upon the palate are lusty flavors of black cherry and black pepper. The wine is muscular yet balanced, with a long lasting finish. Have a nice juicy steak with this one!

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).
