Domaine Martin Mérigot, AOP Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret, Rouge, 2015

Story

The wine
Small family estate, Domaine Martin Merigot spreads over 20 hectares deeply rooted in the Rhone Valley. Magnificent Terroir made of hills, old vines, clay soils, bring a tremendous personality along all vintages.
Terroir
The gnarled Grenache vines on clay-limestone slopes benefit from the mistral. This dry wind helps to slowly ripen the grapes and keep them in tip-top condition. The Syrah vines grown on terraces are somewhat younger (about 30 years old). They give the wine structure and character.
Vinification
This Séguret is made with extra special care. Fermentation takes place traditionally in stainless steel vats. The grapes are entirely destemmed. Maceration lasts 15 days. Our cellarmaster has created a wine with an expressive bouquet showing hints of red fruit. It takes on spicy overtones with age.
Varietals
Grenache noir
Syrah
Mourvèdre
