Vins de Pays red - Cuvée Mathilde 2014
Colour: Ruby red, limpid
Aroma: Intense fruity and spicy recalling forest fruits, cherries, black pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg
Palate: Dry, mellow, rounded, good length with red fruits and spicy notes
Pairing: Wild boar stew
Published in the "Revue du vin de France" of November 2016, winners of the renowed Vacquyeras tasting:
Medium deep ruby red colour. Fine nose, expressive with peppery and meaty notes (perhaps syrah-driven), bay leaf, lavender, sweet red berries and plum. Good grip on the palate, fine extract, rather dense with a complex spiciness and good length. Talk about pleasure.
Our Cotes du Rhone red 2016 was greatly appreciated by the Belgian wine magazine "In Vino Veritas". This was a tasting done prior to "Tastin France", a specialist trade tasting held in Brussels and Amsterdam, where Mathilde will be presenting the domaine.
Our Séguret and Séguret Bel Air awarded by wine Spectator
The 2015 Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret is firmly built and a trifle austere, but it shows lovely fruit and complexity. Hints of stone fruit blend easily into cherreis while garrigue scents wander in and out, adding attractive lavender, thyme and bay leaf notes. Give it a year or two to soften, and drink it over the next 5 years.
