Winemaker Notes

Deep blueberry and forest aromas precede the very long flavors of black cherry, bramble and black pepper. Muscular and packed, it finishes with drying tannins.

Blend: 50% Grenache, 30% Syrah, 10% Cinsault, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Carignan

Critical Acclaim

WS 89
Wine Spectator
Fruit-driven, this is packed with flavors of lush boysenberry, plum sauce and blackberry preserves, with ample drive and cut. Hints of hoisin sauce and anise add definition on the slightly toasty finish.

Chateau de Segries

Chateau de Segries, Lirac, Rhone, France
In 1994, Henri de Lanzac, cousin of Christophe Delorme from Domaine de la Mordorée, purchased the Domaine and began to improve the quality of the wine. "Segries" in provencal means "water spring". This family owned and operated winery is located in Lirac, along the right back of the Rhone river just opposite to Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

The Chateau produces the following A.O.C wines:

Tavel Rose
Cotes du Rhone Rouge
Lirac Rouge
Lirac Blanc

Chateau de Segries owns 44.5 hectares of vineyard land, all in old vines, 30 hectares in one piece alone:

7 ha (17.30 acres) in Tavel, on limestone, pebble stone, sand and clay based soils.
30 ha (74.10 acres) in Lirac, on clay and limestone based soils.
4 ha (9.88 acres) in Cotes du Rhone.
3.5 other ha (8.65 acres) in Côtes du Rhone for the "Clos de l'Hermitage"

Many of the vines date back to 1925, and were planted by the former owner Count de Regis de Gatimel.

A larger region between Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Tavel, Lirac red wines resemble some of the best Cotes du Rhone Villages wines, while it’s rosés are akin to those of Tavel. The region’s quality whites, based on Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, are round and fruit-driven.

Rhône Blends

View all wine

With bold fruit flavors and accents of spice, Rhône red blends originated in France’s Southern Rhône valley and have become popular in Priorat, Washington, South Australia, and California’s Central Coast. In the Rhône itself, 19 grape varieties are permitted for use, but many of these blends, are based on Grenache and supported by Syrah and Mourvèdre, earning the nickname “GSM blends.” Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf-du-Pape are perhaps the best-known outposts for these wines. Other varieties that may be found in Rhône blends include Carignan, Cinsault, and Counoise.

In the Glass

The taste profile of a Rhône blend will vary according to its individual components, as each variety brings something different to the glass. Grenache, which often forms the base of these blends, is the lightest in color but contributes plenty of ripe red fruit, a plush texture, and often high levels of alcohol. Syrah supplies darker fruit flavors, along with savory, spicy, and meaty notes. Mourvèdre is responsible for a floral perfume as well as body, tannin, and a healthy dose of color. New World examples will lie further along the fruit-forward end of the spectrum, while those from the Old World taste and smell much earthier, often with a “barnyard” character that is attractive to many fans of these wines.

Perfect Pairings

Rhône red blends typically make for very food-friendly wines. Depending on the weight and alcohol level, these can work with a wide variety of meat-based dishes—they play equally well with beef, pork, duck, lamb, or game. With their high acidity, these wines are best-matched with salty or fatty foods, and can handle the acidity of tomato sauce in pizza or pasta. Braised beef cheeks, grilled lamb sausages, or roasted squab are all fine pairings.

Sommelier Secret

Some regions like to put their own local spin on the Rhône red blend—for example, in Australia’s Barossa Valley, Shiraz is commonly blended with Cabernet Sauvignon to add structure, tannin, and a long finish. Grenache-based blends from Priorat often include Carignan (known locally as Cariñena) and Syrah, but also international varieties like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. In California, anything goes, and it is not uncommon to see Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or even Tempranillo make an appearance.
