Château de Ségriès Tavel 2009

External Review by Prestige Wine & Spirits:

Perhaps the finest dry rosé we've ever tasted, this one's 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Clairette and 5% Syrah. Long and ripe, with bracing acidity that carries the long finish.

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 excellent 2003 Tavel roseacute; 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.

The gorgeous strawberry/kirsch-laden 2007 Tavel is full and very expressive. A total hedonistic turn-on, this wine should drink splendidly well for 10-12 more months.

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.

Deep, vivid pink. Deeply scented bouquet of raspberry and cherry, with a hint of dried lavender adding interest. Broad, fleshy red fruit flavors are a tad jammy and gain power with air. A rich style, and better suited for service with food than without. Irsquo;d have liked a bit more vivacity but this will work well with grilled birds or fish.

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.
