High above the tiny village of Séguret in the Rhône Valley sits Domaine de Mourchon. Here, winemaker Sébastien Magnouac makes reds that have drawn huge praise from critics around the world. His generously rich Tradition is a gem in their range.
Beyond the Label
Lush raspberry and blackberry with creamy mocha and spice
You’ll find no end of acclaim for the fine reds of Domaine de Mourchon. Master of Wine Jancis Robinson puts their wines “amongst the most interesting 5% of wine made today”. Top US publication, the Wine Advocate, who awarded their 2017 Côtes du Rhône Villages Tradition a glowing 90-92 point score, is even more effusive: “full-bodied, creamy and lush in the mouth, yet it remains lively, energetic and long on the finish," adding "These splendid cuvées are all worth buying by the caseload.” It’s crafted by expert winemaker Sébastien Magnouac. He uses only the ripest fruit picked from old vines and his best oak barrels for ageing. A sumptuous, velvety red with dark fruit richness to partner with lamb or a hearty, herb-laden casserole.
"Full-bodied, creamy and lush. It's dark-fruited and spicy, with hints of mocha, clove and allspice"
