About this wine:
Deep ruby red color.
The wine has plenty to offer with red and black fruit aromas, as well as a good minerality.
The finish is long, clean and juicy and offers some white pepper spiciness typical of the best Crozes-Hermitage.

Soil type is clay and granit covered with pebbles.
Hand harvested in small crates. The grapes are then pumped into tanks (full cluster, not destemmed).
It will stay in this tank for 15 days for the skin contact maceration, the Alcoholic fermentation and the Malo-Lactic Fermentation.
They will also use the "rack and return" technique (delestage).
Then the wine is transfered into neutral French Oak barrels.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Crisp black-plum and bramble notes are accented by pepper, char and anise in this lean, briskly composed Syrah. It's concentrated but spry, framed by grippy but finely edged tannins and a firm, granitic finish. Drink now through 2025." - AI (September 2018)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The density and richness of the vintage shows through in the 2015 Crozes Hermitage La Grande Seguine. It's full-bodied and concentrated, with a velvety, tannic feel and ample length. Plum, black olive and smoke notes linger on the finish. Drink this well-priced Crozes over the next 5-6 years." - Joe Czerwinski (Oct 2018)

Jeb Dunnuck:

"Notes of dark fruits, hickory wood, pepper, and some meatiness all emerge from the 2015 Crozes-Hermitage La Grande Seguine, which is medium-bodied, nicely textured, and elegant on the palate. This was a blockbuster vintage for the southern Rhône, particularly Crozes Hermitage, yet this shines just as much for its silky texture as its outright power. It should keep nicely for 8-10 years." - Jeb Dunnuck (March 27th 2019)
