Malmont Séguret Rouge 2020
Grown high in the hills above Séguret in the Southern Rhône, the Malmont vines struggle though rock-laden nutrient-poor soils, slowing their maturation. The west-facing hillside at 1200 feet of elevation enjoys plentiful breezes throughout the growing season, keeping the grapes cool and healthy. The resulting wines are almost an anomaly in the modern Rhône Valley: organic, delicious southern red blends that barely hit 13.5% alcohol.
Malmont’s 2020 Séguret “Rouge” is an equal parts blend of Grenache and Syrah. The Grenache adds beautiful spice and red fruits to the bouquet, and the 2020 is among the prettiest versions of this wine we can remember. The mouth is delicious, with bold dark fruit and notes of cherry jam, plum, and garrigue. The tannins here are firmer and younger – perfectly coated but with more potential to age.
