"A super value treasure trove in the southern Rhone, Ségriès is a large estate of 109 acres brought back to life over the last decade by Henri de Lanzac. The wines continue to go from strength to strength."- The Wine Advocate
2009 Château de Ségriès Lirac Rouge Cuvée Réservée....$19.99
Age of the vines: 40 years.
50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 5% Mourvèdre, 5% Carignan.
Deep blueberry and forest aromas precede the very long flavors of black cherry, bramble and black pepper. Muscular and packed, it finishes with drying tannins. A great value.
"More serious, structured, and meaty (than the CDR) 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."
