Tasting Notes

Paler ruby than some earlier vintages due to the extreme proportion of Grenache, the nose is however as explosive, plush and opulent as ever, layered with exotic spice, cracked black pepper and of course streaked with crushed vanillin. The palate is instantly appealing, polished and smooth on entry but steeped in depth and texture as the flavours swirl around, lengthen and delight. The lasting impression is satisfying but subtle and fine, not overpowering as perhaps in earlier vintages when they were first released, but a better, finer wine; of course time will be the ultimate judge.

In the vineyard

Sourced from ‘Les Turcs’, a single 7ha east-facing terraced high altitude vineyard in the hills behind the village of Séguret, planted with mostly Grenache intermingled with some Syrah, vines whose minimum age is 50, many older still. The high altitude, old vines and very particular terroir make our Séguret quite unique. These are stony, argillaceous limestone terraces high above the schistous slopes of the village of Séguret. Here the grapes benefit from the morning sun and even ripening temperatures.

In the winery

All the grapes are hand picked. Traditional long cuvaison using only wild ‘natural’ yeasts and remontages’ to release all the potential of the grapes and their skins.24 months in French oak 228 litre barrels and one quarter in 600 litre demi-muids, one third new, one third of 2nd fill and one third of 3rd & 4th fill.

Food Recommendations

Big hearty casseroles and juicy meat dishes.
