2005 Domaine de Mourchon Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret Loubie (France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Côtes du Rhône Villages Séguret)

Light, peachy rose color that leads into a somewhat muted nose that shows a little berry and dried herbs. Much better on the palate, but surprisingly rounded, lush, fruity, and approachable. One can definitely tell that the majority varietal is Cinsault rather than the more tannic Grenache or Mourvedre. Finishes well, and without any hard edges. A super-quaffer for the summer time that we consumed with homemade Pizza and Insalata Caprese. Recommended and at the current retail a steal. Thanks Peter for recommending it.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
