The Latest Vintage of Chateau de Segries, Clos de l’Hermitage

I have seen several emails this month offering the 2010 vintage of the Chateau de Segries, Clos de l’Hermitage.  The 2009 vintage was highly rated by Parker so I suspect there might be some curiosity about the 2010 vintage.  In my review of the 2009 I thought that it had a modern profile, full-bodied flavors, and the structure for aging.  The 2010 is a restrained, balanced style which will benefit from cellaring.  While you could get away with drinking the 2009 right away the 2010 requires age.  I recommend you buy a few bottles to lay down for if you like mature Cotes du Rhone like me then you will want to drink this in five to ten years. This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2010 Chateau de Segries, Clos de l’Hermitage, Cotes du Rhone – $25
Imported by Kysela Pere et Fils.  This wine is a blend of 33% Grenache, 33% Syrah, and 33% Mourvedre sourced from 40-year-old vines.  It was fermented in concrete vats then aged for nine months in 5% new oak barrels.  The wine is a very grapey color in the glass.  There is a light nose of tightly packed black fruit, dried herbs, pepper, and licorice.  In the mouth there are tight-grained blue fruit, fine, powerful tannins, and a little strawberry flavor breaking loose.  With air the wine reveals pencil and pepper flavors along with the structure for aging.  **(*) 2017-2025.
