Château de Ségriès Tavel 2009

External Review by Premium Wine & Spirits:

We insist you try this wine. Really. From the region of Tavel in Francersquo;s Rhocirc;ne Valley, famed for its delicious roseacute;s, comes a top-quality blend of mainly Grenache and Cinsault. Herbal notes and dry grass on the nose, crisp minerality along with bright watermelon and strawberry on the palate, and a strong, fruity finish. Excellent value from a top producer.

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 brilliant 2008 Tavel (50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Clairette, and 5% Syrah) is a big-boned, brawny, dry roseacute; with plenty of flavor. It cuts a savory, heady feel across the palate. Enjoy it over the next 8ndash;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. I'd have liked a bit more vivacity but this will work well with grilled birds or fish.

Tavel is the most renowned rosé of France, and you should not be deceived by its pink color! This is a dry wine with robust, spicy, berry flavors. Pasta with pesto and warm summer evening are the perfect companions to this jewel from Provence.

We insist you try this wine. Really. From the region of Tavel in France's Rhône Valley, famed for its delicious rosés, comes a top-quality blend of mainly Grenache and Cinsault. Herbal notes and dry grass on the nose, crisp minerality along with bright watermelon and strawberry on the palate, and a strong, fruity finish. Excellent value from a top producer.

Tavel rosés are made in the tiny, sleepy village of the same name, less than 10 miles southwest and across the river from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Nine Rhône grapes (both red and white) can be used in the winemaker's blend. Grenache and Cinsault being the primary grapes used. Despite its pretty ruby color, this is a wine that is rugged, robust and spicy. Incredibly fresh and bright, it has flavors of raspberries, cherries and wild herbs. Bone dry, it has an appealing roughness, an edge that makes it perfect for washing down dishes laden with garlic, olive oil and fresh herbs.

Perhaps the finest dry roseacute; wersquo;ve ever tasted, this onersquo;s 50% Grenache, 30% Cinsault, 15% Clairette and 5% Syrah. Long and ripe, with bracing acidity that carries the long finish.
