Domaine de l'Amandine Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret 2007

External Review:

The impressive Domaine l`Amandine is a family owned estate nestled in the heart of the Cote du Rhone by the village of Segruet and surrounded by the Gigondas vineyards. The 50 hectares are managed by Jean-Pierre Verdeau and his son Christian. This wine is a melange of seven different grape varieties including Grenache, Carignan, Cinsault, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. To make this very limited lot they simply created the best blend that they could without worrying about following AOC varietal rules, hence the VDP status (similar to Italy's IGT). It's a brightly flavored, fruit-filled wine with spice and berries. Another great value find from the outstanding 2007 vintage in the Southern Rhone.

This is a Domaine that focuses on producing quality, well priced wines. The oak-aged, syrah dominated Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret red wine exudes spice, violet fruit and texture with silky, liquorice flavours that linger on the pallet. The oak-aged Côtes du Rhône red wine delivers lifted cherry and violet fruit flavours with spice and hints of tobacco. Domaine de l’amandine’s Côtes du Rhône white and rosé wines are fermented at low temperatures in order to preserve the fruit aromas. The white wine boasts lychee and pineapple flavours whereas the rosé emphasises strawberries and cream aromas Read less
