TASTING NOTES: Nice dark colour with purple tints. Very nice feeling in the mouth, with a lot of roundness, nice and soft tannins, and a long finish on black fruits and spices.
A wine which can be appreciated right now and with a very nice keeping potential. The clay brought by the adjacent mountains gives Seguret wines an added freshness compared with appellations closer to the Rhone river.
Domaine de l'Amauve is one of those true gems that are hard to find. Christian Voeux is an amazing winemaker. People know him most often as the winemaker behind Chateau la Nerthe, one of the top Chateauneuf du Pape estates. But he also produces his own wine out of the 25 acre family estate he took over a few years ago.
Christian's wines are just the perfect example of excellence in winemaking. His cuvees balance stainless steel with barrel aging and most of the wines age for several months before being bottled. Christian keeps the wine an additional 12 months in bottle before releasing it.
