Note : 92
(made from two-thirds grenache and one-third syrah): Opaque ruby. Heady scents of red berry preserves, lavender, anise and sandalwood, lifted by a peppery topnote. Offers intense, palate-staining raspberry and cherry-cola flavors that gain weight with air. Impressively lively and pure on the persistent finish, which features gentle tannins and a late note of bitter chocolate.
Note : 90
Ripe and concentrated, but very silky and refined, with lots of black tea and incense swirling around the core of cassis, blackberry and plum fruit. The long, anise-infused finish has an iron hint as well. Drink now through 2015. 3,000 cases made.

Possibly the best wine I’ve tasted from this estate, the smoking good 2010 Grande Réserve is a blend of 65% Grenache and 35% Syrah that would pass undetected in a lineup of top-quality Châteauneuf-du-Papes. Boasting a vivid purple color as well as knockout aromatics of raspberry, spice, licorice, garrigue, and hints of flowers, this full-bodied Séguret is an incredibly complete wine that has nothing out of place, fantastic concentration, and a seamless, layered profile. Quite fresh and still tight now, it should be given 2-3 years in the cellar, and then consumed over the following 7-8 years.
Note : 16,5/20
65% Grenache, 35% Syrah, 60 year old vines 20 hl/ha. 40% aged in oak. Serious stuff! Beautifully sculpted with no excess of alcohol.
