You can quote me, "This is the best value Cotes du Rhone you will ever find".
Cotes du Rhone wines are well known for their affordability, but often that lower price tag comes at a cost in quality. Domaine de Seminaire from a unique and cooler part of the Rhone have managed to produce an affordable red wine that leaves all other wines in its class for dead. I seriously thought I was drinking good Chateauneuf du Pape!
Here's a little information on the producer and perhaps the key to the wine's astounding quality:
"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 northeastern corner of the Southern Rhône. A beautiful Provençal house, surrounded by olive and truffle oak trees, lavender fields and thick forest, is the center of this idyllic micro-estate. 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 sulfur. These wines offer beauty and amazing value." - Ergo Wine Imports
