About Chateau Signac

This sunny site on the right bank of the Rhone has been planted with vines since Roman times. While we’re not sure about the quality back then, today we can safely commend the Amez-Droz family for producing good wines at even better prices.

90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November 2009

(a blend of 45% syrah, 30% carignan and 25% grenache):  Bright red-ruby.  Precise aromas of blueberry, dark plum, violet, medicinal herbs and crushed rock.  Juicy, sweet and energetic, with an urgent intensity to the flavors of black fruits and licorice lifted by pepper.  At once smooth and light on its feet.  Gives a classically dry impression despite its full ripeness and really scrapes the palate clean on the persistent finish.  (ST)

After an hour in the glass this wine opened to reveal a bouquet of violets over barnyard aromas (in a good way). Surprisingly complex, and really a joy to explore. I would definitely order more, and the wine should age well for at least another 5 years.

The primary varieties cultivated here are Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan. Wines simply labeled Cotes du Rhone may rank at the bottom of the hierarchy...
