Selection Laurence Feraud Cotes du Rhone Villages Seguret Rhone 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Seguret is one of the very best of the Rhene \'Villages\', but is far less known than Cairanne or Rasteau as it\'s about 1/10th the size. Quality is superb and Laurence has a long term agreement with one of the best growers, whose grapes she rescued from the local Cooperative. 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah. Pairs well with grilled meats or vegetables, seared tuna, or classic Provençal fare such as ratatouille or cassoulet.

The story behind the Domaine de Pegau begins in the late 17th century with our ancestors farming a few small fields of vines bordered with olive and cherry trees. The revenue from the cherries sold in the local provençal markets covered the costs of working the vineyards. The olives and their golden oil were for family consumption, whilst the grapes went into producing the already famous red wine of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The grape picking was family work which took place in an ambience of light-heartedness and fun but with a respect for quality and even then a vigerous selection of the best grapes. At the end of the row the horse waited patiently for the moment when he felt the wooden paniers gorged with grapes weighing down his cart. Once at the winery the grapes were liahtlv Dressed to break the skins - foulé, (the word means literally press by stepping on), the whole bunches were put in trie vats and then the wine-making took place over a period of 15 days. Times have changed, but this traditional style of wine-making is continued today at the Domaine de Pegau. Read less

Spicy, yet smooth. I like this wine (2008), I am drinking the 2008, which I bought in Washington, DC for $12. I would buy this wine again. And also the 2009 or 2010.
