    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

    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.
