Joncuas Séguret 2016
Sisters Dany and Carol Chastan make exquisite Rhône cuvées using old-school techniques. ambient yeasts, no oak (not even foudres), 100% whole cluster, no fining or filtering. It sounds like a recipe for a big rustic wine, but the Chastan sisters somehow managed to produce wines of superb texture and subtlety.
The nose is dark and lovely, with notes of briary cherries, garrigue, orange peel, and provencal spices. The mouth is dark, old-school, and mid-weight, with lovely tannins and notes of raspberry and lavender. The Wine Advocate awarded 92 points, calling it “full-bodied,” “dark-fruited and herbal,” with a “long, mouthwatering finish.”
