Note : 17/20
Bright, shiny, deep crimson. 60 year-old vines. Just 15 hl/ha. Aged for 10 months in oak barrels. Blackish crimson. Very glamorous, ripe, concentrated Syrah without any simple sweetness almost recalls Hermitage ! Pretty racy and sinewy on the palate. Juicy and dry with good, fresh acidity to counterbalance the density. Really very impressive. 14% Drink 2016-2021.
ROBERT PARKER’S WINE ADVOCATE
Note : 90-92
Tasted from foudre, the medium to full-bodied 2015 Cotes du Rhone Villages Seguret Family Reserve Syrah combines lively black pepper aromas with fresh blackberries and hints of espresso, roasted meat and cola. It’s an unusually expressive Syrah for the Southern Rhône, with supple tannins and crisp acids.
Note : 91
Deliciously juicy and ripe, with a light bramble background that gives the core of cassis, raspberry and violet notes good energy. A flash of chalk imparts tension. Syrah. Drink now through 2020.
