2006 Domaine de Mourchon "Seguret Tradition" Côtes du Rhône-Villages (Previously $20)

SKU #1053726

90 points Robert Parker: "The 2006 Tradition exhibits a dense ruby/purple hue as well as a luscious perfume of blackberries, cherries, earth, pepper, and garrigue. A classic for the region, it is a rich, full-bodied, pure wine to consume over the next 4-5 years.One of the reference point estates in the southern Côtes du Rhône, Domaine de Mourchon is situated in the charmingly beautiful Provencal hill top village of Seguret. This is a tour de force in winemaking from the Côtes du Rhône-Villages of Seguret. Kudos to Domaine de Mourchon! These splendid cuvees are all worth buying by the caseload." (02/209) According to Wine Spectator: "Dark and juicy, with a core of plum, currant and blackberry fruit layered with notes of bittersweet cocoa, fruitcake and hoisin sauce. There's also a nice bit of briary grip on the finish. Fresher and purer than the Family Reserve." (09/08) And, according to Wine Enthusiast:: "Mourchon’s vineyards are high above the plain, which gives them a unique crisp, spicy character that’s on full display in this 2006. Cranberry and cherry fruit is marked by peppery notes and some slightly hard tannins on the finish. Drink now with beef or lamb." (12/09)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

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.

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.
