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.

91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - June 2011

Deep, bright red-ruby.  At once sexy and serious on the nose, showing slightly liqueur-like scents of blackberry, licorice, violet, bitter chocolate.  Then juicy, chewy and concentrated, offering lovely concentration, a penetrating sweetness to its creamy black cherry, berry and floral flavors, and real energy and definition.  Finishes with suave but firm tannins that dust the front teeth.  Quite full and long for the category:  you'd be hard-pressed to find this much fruit, energy, texture and early appeal from a California wine in the same price range.

Will be even better with age

Opened the first bottle last night. Did not decant but used Venturi. Beautiful color, excellent body and velvety smooth texture. Wonderful wine for a relatively young 2009. Will even be better if laid down for a couple of years, but very drinkable now. Loved it!!

This is a big, rich, lush Southern Rhone, full of sweet, ripe fruit. There is balancing acidity along with fine tannins on the finish. A beautiful food wine that will likely be even better in a couple of years.
Excellent value!

This wine was all I had expected. It's nice to be able to have access to wines that are not usually offered at the local wine warehouses and liquor stores. I will continue to consider Wine Acess for future purchases due to the ease of ordering and hard to find selections. Thank you

About the Cotes du Rhone
