Winemaker Notes

This wine has a deep plum color with a nose suggesting a ripe fruit such as fig, and notes of spices and liquorice. The palate is full bodied though subtle, with pronounced fruit intensity, gentle minerality and harmonious tannins.

Enjoy with any slow-cooked caramelised dishes, creamy cheeses or chocolate dessert with red fruits coulis.

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
There’s less than 100 cases of the 2014 Cotes du Rhone Villages Séeguret Family Reserve Grenache (100% Grenache from the oldest vines on the estate), which sports a ruby/purple-tinged color as well as sexy, sweet bouquet of kirsch liqueur, black raspberries, roasted Provençal herbs, pepper and lavender. Broad, beautifully concentrated, especially for a 2014, with sweet tannin, terrific purity and a great finish, it’s a terrific example of what a top-notch estate can do in a difficult vintage. It’s well worth seeking out and will drink well through 2024.

Wine Spectator
Features a solid core of plum, anise and black currant, liberally inlaid with sweet tobacco and bramble notes, all carried by a well-integrated chalky spine. Solid for the vintage. Best from 2017 through 2020.

Cotes du Rhone Villages

View all wine

An appellation full of some of the most delightful and particularly charming reds, Côtes du Rhône Villages includes the best villages of the greater Côtes du Rhône appellation. The possibility for an appellation promotion exists for every named village but each has to achieve and prove superior quality before an upgrade will be granted. The main ones today are Gigondas, Vacqueyras, Beaumes-de-Venise, Vinsobres, Rasteau and Cairanne.

The Gigondas appellation, while sometimes producing wines with a touch of rusticity, can often rival Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Its elevations are higher and soils richer in limestone. Vacqueyras reds are more concentrated than the more general Côtes du Rhône reds and must be at least one half comprised of Grenache by law. Beaumes de Venise also includes some excellent higher elevation spots for making snappy, fruity and spicy reds but historically the appellation’s esteem came from its fragrant, sweet and golden Muscat de Beaumes-de-Venise.

Grenache

Enjoying great glory across a variety of appellations, Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. The grape typically produces full-bodied reds interestingly light in both color and tannins. While it can make a charmingly complex single varietal wine, it also lends well to blending. Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha) where it remains important, particularly in Priorat where winemakers enjoy great liberties in blending Grenache with other varieties. Today it might be most well associated with the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its Villages. The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic Grenache (there called Cannonau) whereas in California, Washington and Australia, Grenache has achieved popularity both flying solo and in blends.

In the Glass

In sufficiently warm conditions, Grenache produces smooth and generous wines that are loaded with strawberry, cherry blackberry, purple plum and in the richest examples, even cocoa, black tea or licorice.

Perfect Pairings

Despite its bold flavors, Grenache has very mild-mannered tannins, which makes it eminently quaffable on its own, yet easy to match with food. Because of its friendly nature, Grenache is the ultimate barbecue red, pairing happily with lamb chops, pork loin or tri-tip. Unlike most other full-bodied reds, Grenache’s low tannin level ensures that it will not easily be fazed by a bit of spice.

Sommelier Secret

Sardinia is often revered for its association with a long and healthy life. Residents of the Italian island often live well into their 90s and beyond, crediting this to their antioxidant-rich red wines, like Cannonau, along with their healthy Mediterranean diet.
