Chateau de Segries 1999 Cotes-du-Rhone ($9.99)
The first young Rhone of the 1999 vintage I've seen locally, this one is modest in price and pretense, almost Beaujolais-style in its fresh, ripe fruitiness. Clear ruby in color, its pleasant aroma focuses on perfumed red fruit. Fresh, juicy cherries dominate the palate, tart and almost sweet. U.S. importer: Kysela Pere et Fils Ltd., Winchester, Va. (July 28, 2000)
FOOD MATCH: Fine, if a bit light, with char-broiled rib eye steaks.

Previous day's wine note
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.|
