An impressive 2015 Domaine du Seminaire, CdRV Valreas


I do not think I have ever tasted a Rhone wine solely from Valreas.  The 2015 Domaine du Seminaire, Cote du Rhone Villages Valreas is a new wine in our area so of course I grabbed a bottle.  This is a traditionally made wine, fermented in concrete with no use of oak.  It is strong and forward with a grapey, floral personality.  The liveliness is attractive, causing you to return for another taste.  I imagine it might open up over the next year but it is a fun drink right now.  Go get some!  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2015 Domaine du Seminaire, Cote du Rhone Villages Valreas – $18
Imported by Martine’s wines.  This wine is a blend of mostly Grenache with Syrah that was fermented concrete.  Alcohol 14%.    The higher-toned grapey, floral nose makes way to similarly grapey, black fruit in the mouth.  The wine has quite the strength, building intensity through the middle.  This is balanced by almost lively acidity and fine texture.  Flavors of baking spices and a tangy finish add to the complexity. This is an impressive, grapey wine.  *** Now – 2022.
