Intro to les Coteaux Schisteaux Seguret –
Les Coteaux Schisteaux Seguret in the Rhone Valley in France is instantly appealing and smooth with depth and texture as the flavours lengthen giving a lasting impression full yet subtle and fine wine.
Full tasting note and wine making –
The lasting impression of the Seguret, Rhone Village is of a satisfying, big, opulent sweet Grenache driven wine with obvious oak quality, great structure, length and finish. The secret to the style and quality of our 2009 Séguret Les Coteaux Schisteux is twofold: firstly it is nearly 100% Grenache Noir and secondly over the years the wine has been increasingly matured in demi-muids. The proportion of wine to wood in a demi-muids is greater, so the oaky influence is more diffuse, gentler and more subtle, less dominant in other words and bring more complexity to the wine.
The grapes are sourced from ‘Les Turcs’, a single 7ha east-facing terraced high altitude vineyard behind the village of Séguret, planted Grenache with some Syrah, vines whose minimum age is 50. The high altitude, old vines and very particular terroir make the Séguret quite unique. All the grapes are hand-picked and after a long fermentation they spend 24 months in French oak barrels and one quarter in 600 litre demi-muids, one third new, one third of 2nd fill and one third of 3rd & 4th fill.
The producer –
Boutinot, the producers of the Les Coteaux Cotes du Rhone believe great wine can be made there. They have bought here in the southern Rhône in the village of Cairanne and now own several plots of old vines for even better wine. Over the past decade they have built enviable relationships with a network of local growers and to source grapes and wine from their trove of prized vineyards for a full range of Rhône wines.
