2007 Chateau de Segriés "Clos de l'Hermitage" Côtes du Rhône

SKU #1049203

(UPDATED 1:30pm August 12th - this wine has sold out much faster than anticipated - we are very sorry for any inconvenience - wish we had more - it was not our intention to get your hopes up and then have it go so rapidly) 94 points Robert Parker: "Even though the 2007 Cotes du Rhone Clos de l’Hermitage is over the $25 limit for this value report, I have included it because it is such a remarkable wine, and even at $30 a bottle, it represents a fabulous bargain. Made from 40-year-old vines, it is an equal part blend of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre. Its opaque purple color is followed by a bouquet that smells more like a Côte Rôtie than a Côtes du Rhône. Flowery notes intermixed with tapenade, ground pepper, roasted meats, and copious black cherry and blackberry fruit soar from the glass. The wine possesses fabulous density, a rich, full-bodied style, and present, but sweet tannin. It should drink gorgeously for 10-12 years, perhaps longer." (06/09) 14.5% abv.

Rhone Blends

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
