Les Coteaux Schisteux Seguret Cotes du Rhone Villages AOP

2014

In a Nutshell

An impressive classic Seguret - about as good as Côtes du Rhône-Villages gets!

Tasting Notes

Paler ruby than some earlier vintages due to the extreme proportion of Grenache, the nose is however as explosive, plush and opulent as ever, layered with exotic spice, cracked black pepper and of course streaked with crushed vanillin. The palate is instantly appealing, polished and smooth on entry but steeped in depth and texture as the flavours swirl around, lengthen and delight. The lasting impression is satisfying - a big, oppulent and sweet Grenache driven wine with obvious oak quality, great structure, length and finish.

Production Notes

'Les Turcs' is a single east-facing high-altitude vineyard with stony, argillaceous limestone terraces , above the schistous slopes of the village of Séguret. Here, on vines of 50 years of age (some are older), the grapes benefit from the morning sun and even ripening temperatures. Grenache Noir and Syrah can only be harvested by hand in this unforgiving terroir. Traditional long cuvasion using only wild ‘natural’ yeasts is aided by regular remontage to release all the potential of the grapes and their skins. The wine spends 22 months in French oak 228l barrels and 600l demi-muids.
