This is alluring, with mulled spice and black tea aromas leading the way for a silky core of raspberry and plum sauce flavors. The long, anise-edged finish lingers nicely. Drink now through 2020.” James Molesworth

Part of the Boutinot Rhône Fide et Arte range 'Les Coteaux Schisteux', Séguret, Côtes du Rhône Villages 2014 is sourced from a single 50 year vineyard planted with Grenache Noir intermingled, as was the tradition, with Syrah. The result is a Séguret which is one of the  purest expressions of Granche Noir in the Southern Rhône valley.
