A smoking Cotes du Rhone, the 2012 Clos de l’Hermitage is loaded with notions of black raspberries, sweet oak, licorice and toasted spice. Slightly more medium-bodied and mid-weight than previous vintages, it has terrific purity, good acidity and a fresh, elegant style that will keep it drinking nicely for another 4-6 years. 

Meaning "water" in Provencal, Chateau de Segries was purchased by Henri de Lanzac (who's the cousin of Christophe Delorme of Domaine de la Mordoree) in 1994. Today the estate covers over 100 acres, mostly of old vines, spread amoung Tavel, Cotes du Rhone and Lirac.
