Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 15.5%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is deep purple in color with a nose suggesting spices, liquorice and cooked red fruit. The palate is full bodied with elegant fruit intensity, some spice and harmonious tannins.

Enjoy with confit of duck, game, black truffle omelette, chicken with tarragon cream, creamy cheeses such as Brie or Langue or chocolate desserts.

65% Grenache, 35% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

"The color of the 2009 Seguret Grande Reserve (a blend of 65% concrete-aged Grenache and 35% oak barrel-aged Syrah from 60-year-old vines) is not dissimilar from the Syrah cuvee, a deep ruby/purple with blue tints. It boasts a stunning bouquet of kirsch, blueberries, blackberries, incense and spice box. Full-bodied and rich, this is a fabulous example of what can be achieved in the outlying Cotes du Rhone-Villages appellations. It ranks alongside the brilliant 2007s produced by Domaine de Mourchon. It should drink well for at least a decade.

Mourchon has quickly emerged as one of the leading estates of the Cotes du Rhone village of Seguret. Normally three cuvees are produced although in 2008, no Grande Reserve was made. Proprietor Walter McKinlay continues to prove that humble pedigrees can turn out silky vinous treasures.
Range: 91-94 "
94 Points

"Dark and juicy, with a lovely espresso and tobacco frame to the dark fig, cassis and violet core. Long and rich through the finish, but with graphite-led cut that adds serious length. Grenache and Syrah. Drink now through 2013. 3,300 cases made."

Was hoping it would taste closer to some Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines I've had, unfortunately it was a tad too heavy on the black pepper side for my liking. Not bad by any means, just not what I was expecting.
