2015 ()

(vat) sober plum red robe. The nose is full of spice, white pepper, with a Grenache-led inlay of cooked plums. It carries local colour, represents its place accurately. There is the occasional note of tobacco, clove. The palate bustles along with a spicy cocktail of red stone fruits, raspberry, and some grainy tannins, the finish rounded. There are good naked, no interference qualities to this. The juice carries the compact nature of 2015. With the tannic assertion on the end, drink this with steaks, beef stews, lamb ragout. It’s a genuine Séguret, gets out and goes. 14°. 70% Gren, 30% Syr. 30,000 b. €4. To 2020 Aug 2017

(vat) dark red; briar and garrigue outcrop airs show on the nose, which bears black cherry, Morello style fruit aromas, with licorice hovering. The fruit sets off well on the palate, hits a line of dusted tannins before the close. It has an agreeable darkness on the finish. This is a well presented, authentic Séguret. 13.5°. 50,000 b. From spring 2016. 2019-20  April 2015

2012 ()

(vat) Grenache plum red colour, sound depth. Smoky, pine clad uplands air, a low-key note of brewing, a sense of high, mature red stone fruits. The palate bears spiced red fruit, is a medium-weight wine with a lot of spiced covering and tension in it. It ends on a menthol, eucalyptus cut. This is till raw – there are no modern concession for smoothie tannins. It carries local imprint, and the red fruit makes it through to the aftertaste. Traditional style wine. 13.2°. From 2015. €3.85 ex cellars. 2018-19  Oct 2013
