Selection Laurence Feraud Seguret 2009

Selection Laurence Feraud Seguret 2009

750ML    
Sku: 040208

In addition to running the legendary Châteauneuf-du-Pape estate Domaine du Pegau with her father Paul, Laurence Féraud manages a successful negociant wine business under the "Sélection Laurence Féraud" label.

Séguret is one of the very best of the Rhône 'Villages', but is far less known than Cairanne or Rasteau as it's about 1/10th the size. Quality is superb and Laurence has a long term agreement with one of the best growers, whose grapes she rescued from the local Cooperative.

Rating
2009 Vintage: 90 Points - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Enthusiast: "Laurence Féraud’s selections (her family owns Domaine de Pégaü in Châteauneuf-du-Pape) for her négociant line, like this Séguret, often represent excellent values. This is a full-bodied, velvety wine filled with notes of kirsch and Mexican chocolate. The finish is warm and comforting, and like a thick blanket, it would be a welcome sight this winter."
