Sommelier's Notes

This is a red wine from Burgundy, France, made from Pinot Noir. This wine is produced in the village of Arox-Colden in Golden Hill. It has a deep ruby red color and is rich in red and black fruits. The tannins are as soft as velvet, and the taste is rich and smooth. The style is very elegant. This wine can be drunk alone or as a supplement to a variety of cuisines.


Under stricter requirements than for the Côtes du Rhône Villages, twenty of the communes of the appellation are authorized to append their respective village name on the label. With around 5,500 hectares under cultivation, the average yield is approximately 37 hectoliters per hectare. 


The minimum required alcoholic strength is fixed at 12.5% for the reds and 12% for the whites and rosés.


This mountain village is located on the eastern side of the river Oèveze. It is ancient regarding wine as Pliny the Elder mentions it in his natural history. However it is only recently that the 220 ha. of the appellation has become interesting. The terroir is interesting - chalk at altitude (near the Dentelles de Montmirail), resulting in fine wines from the independent producers.


Domaine Eyguestre is a family business which was created in 1919.


Originally, the estate was a farm operated by Laurent's great-grandfather, Louis Bellion. His grandfather Ismaël enlarged the farm and turned to mixed farming (cereals, olives, orchards, vines).


His father, Lucien, bet everything on the vine by taking his production to the cooperative cellar. Laurent Bellion took over the operation in 2000 and decided to create his own estate in 2011.


Today, Domaine Eyguestre has 19 hectares of vines and 300 olive trees. 


La Grange De Fert 2017 is made from a selection of the best grapes located on the best plots located at an altitude of 250 m. Old vines of 70 years. 30% slope. The soil is made up of white clay and blue marl. 


With a predominance of Grenache, the wine gets both dominant notes of cherry and a slightly herbal character, while Syrah contributes with structure, fullness and dack fruit.


One senses little animal notes from the Grenache grape that intrude. The Cotes du Rhone Villages Seguret has plenty of depth and complexity, but without compromising on the charming freshness and elegance that make the best of the Rhone wines so exciting. Soft, creamy and full-bodied with lots of depth.
