Domaine Mourchon wins Parker acclaim - 92-95!

mourchon.jpgRobert Parker has been raving about the 2007 vintage …most of the wine press headlines are dedicated to his assessment of Chateauneuf du Pape but lesser AOC’s have also been winning accolades not least our friends and tour itinerary partners over at the magnificently situated Domaine Mourchon at Seguret. Here’s what the grand man had to say of the McKinley’s top wine the Family Reserve: “I┬átasted both the Syrah and Grenache components that will make up the 2007 Family Reserve, and they offer further evidence (if any more were needed) that in the southern Rhone, 2007 is a vintage of a lifetime. Unreal layers of flavors (black raspberries, kirsch, blackberries, licorice, garrigue, and subtle smoke) are extravagantly presented in a pure, full-bodied, gorgeously textured, seamless style. 92-95

One of the reference point estates in the southern Cotes du Rhone, Domaine de Mourchon is┬ásituated in the charmingly beautiful Provencal hill top village of Seguret. This is a tour de force in winemaking from the Cotes du Rhone-Villages of Seguret. Kudos to Domaine de Mourchon! These splendid cuvees are all worth buying by the caseload”
