Séguret is a beautiful hillside village situated just east of the Dentelles de Montmirail in the Southern Rhône Valley. Domaine De Mourchon is set in the hills behind Séguret at an altitude of 350 metres and the vineyards are divided into a series of hillside parcels.
This gleaming six-year-old space-age winery wouldn’t look out of place in any ‘New World’ wine producing region. The point of difference being the 35 to 55 year old vines growing in the clay, limestone and grey sandstone which characteristically provide Séguret with its dark color, full-body, plenty of spicy fruit, and firm structure courtesy of the powerful ripe tannins. They are wines with the ability to age and develop in the cellar for up to ten years. As is typical of the area Grenache is the most widely planted variety and is complemented with Syrah, Carignan and Cinsault.
