B-21 Top Recommendation
Located next to Rasteau and just north of Gigondas, Seguret is one of the most beautiful villages in France. Like its more famous neighbors, vines have been cultivated in Seguret since Roman times. Higher elevation here adds a freshness and elegance to the wines. Sharing the varied soil types afforded geologically by the Dentilles which Seguret shares with Gigondas, adds complexity finesse and balance to the wines. Domaine L'Amandine has become our favorite Seguret estate, having watched the progress of Alex and Sabine Suter who have been managing the estate since 2013. The purity of fruit is impressive, the fruits intensity is afforded by older vines planted in the 1960s. The density on the palate and finish is remarkable considering the wine is raised in cement. This is among the very best bargains in the Rhone today. The estate quickly sold out with recent accolades.
