Domaine de Seminaire Cotes du Rhone 2016


70% Grenache, 15% Syrah, 15% Carignan and certified organically grown; Notes of raspberries, damp herbs, earth and pepper all emerge from the juicy, forward, quaffable 2015 Cotes du Rhone from Domaine du Seminaire. This deep ruby/purple-tinged 2015 is medium-bodied and lively on the palate, with good richness, chewy tannin and a clean finish. It’s a well-made, thoroughly enjoyable Cotes du Rhone to drink over the coming 3-5 years.

More Information

Unlike the usual warmer Côte du Rhône climates yielding lush fruit, this fourth generation farm is located on 250 acres in the cool foothills of the Alps near the village of Valréas, where the Mistral winds whips through this north-eastern corner of the Southern Rhône.

The area around the town of Valréas is known as L’Enclave des Papes. It is an enclave of Vaucluse, surrounded by the department of the Drôme. Hervé Pouizin and his wife, Mathilde have preserved the self-sufficient estate mostly as it was a century ago, with one key exception: they converted everything to organic farming.

Fermenting their wines in the same huge concrete tanks since 1938, the couple takes an old-school approach to winemaking and uses no oak.

They produce high-toned, bright, floral wines, in keeping with their region and elevation, bottled early to preserve the fruit and with minimal sulphur. These wines offer beauty and amazing value.
