Product Description

Yield:  40 hl/ha / Age of the vines:  40 years.
This 3.5 hectare vineyard, located in the famous “Quartier de la Chartreuse de Villeneuve-les-Avignon”,  has been owned by the Formula 1 race car driver Jean Alesi since 1995. It is managed by Château de Ségriès. 
The wine is made of 1/3 each of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. 
Vinification: 21 days skin maceration in temperature controlled concrete vats, 9 months oak aging -5% new French oak from Seguin Moreau cooper and 95% of 1 year old barrels. 

"It’s more expensive than the $25 cut off for this article, but I have reviewed it in the past and I’m sure it will be reviewed in The Wine Advocate in the future, but the 2011 Clos de l’Hermitage Henri de Lanzac (the proprietor of Segries) is a Cotes du Rhone  that is beautifully powerful, rich and full. The 2011 is more drinkable than most vintages at a similar age. From a vineyard owned by the Formula One race car driver, Jean Alesy, it is an equal part blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre. I rated it 90."

The Chateau de Segries Estate
In 1994, Henri de Lanzac, cousin of Christophe Delorme from Domaine de la Mordoree, purchased the Domaine and began to improve the quality of the wine. "Segries" in provencal means "water spring". This family owned and operated winery is located in Lirac and produces some of the best values in my portfolio. They produce the following A.O.C. wines:
          * Tavel Rose
          * Cotes du Rhone Rouge
          * Lirac Rouge
          * Lirac Blanc

"An old Lirac estate with recent signs of revival under the new owners; the reds are medium weight, good to drink inside six years; charming Tavel." - Anthony Dias Blue's pocket guide to wine 2006

"A super value treasure trove in the southern Rhone, Segries is a large estate of 109 acres brought back to life over the last decade by Henri de Lanzac. The wines continue to go from strength to strength."- Wine Advocate (#178, Aug. 2008)

"Over the last fifteen years, this property has been transformed into one of the better value producers in the Cotes du Rhone. The old, oxidized, vegetal offerings have been replaced with classic examples of Provencal wines that are fresh and fruity with ripe tannins." - Wine Advocate (#190, Aug. 2010)

"The new releases from proprietor Henri de Lanzac are all impressive." - Wine Advocate (#195, June 2011)

"This has been a reliable producer of terrific values in the Cotes du Rhone (and for their Tavel rose) for a number of years, and they have once again done an admirable job." - Wine Advocate (#201, June 2012)
