2009 Segries, Clos de l’Hermitage, Cotes du Rhone

This is a recent release for the DC market.  Having received 93 points from Robert Parker, Paul’s Wine and Spirits sent out a few emails that caused them to sell out of their stock.  This wine is imported by Kysela Pere et Fils.  I purchased a bottle a few weeks ago from MacArthurs and we recently pulled the cork.  You may find background information in my review of the 2003 Segries, Clos de l’Hermitage .  This is a good wine that shows a modern flavor profile but retains the structure for aging and herbs which remind me of the 2003.  Priced at $25 it is a bit on the expensive side.  If you buy the 2009 I would feel free to try a bottle but it really requires cellaring for several years.

In the glass the color is youthful with a medium intensity grapey color.  There is a light, sweet, delicate, powdery nose.  In the mouth there are rich blue fruits, a little spice, “something else”, and stone dust.  The fine, hard tannins delicately exist throughout the palate.  The aftertaste provides fine, coating tannins.  This is a fuller-bodied wine that has the components to develop for several years and last for some time.  It is a bit modern. ***(*) 2015-2020.
