Séguret, Les Coteaux Schisteux, Côtes du Rhône

'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 50 year old vines (some are even older), the grapes benefit from the morning sun and from even ripening temperatures. Grenache Noir and Syrah can only be harvested by hand in this unforgiving terroir. Traditional long cuvasion using only wild 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.

An impressive, classic Séguret - about as good as Côtes du Rhône Villages gets! The nose is as explosive, plush and opulent as ever, layered with suggestions of exotic spices, cracked black pepper and streaked with vanilla. 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 and opulent Grenache-driven wine with obvious oak quality, great structure, length and finish.
