Domaine de Mourchon
"This is the best estate today in Séguret"
We met Walter McKinlay when we visited Domaine de Mourchon as tourists around Christmas 2006. The estate is tucked away in the hills just outside Séguret and has stunning views. More...

Walter has put a lot of thought into making the estate blend well with its surroundings and has built a stunning new winery. This combines the natural resources of the domaine (not least gravity, still all too often overlooked as a useful resource!) with state-of-the-art equipment set out in a both logical and attractive manner (the picture really doesn't do it justice but Walter is very welcoming and likes to show off his toys). This approach comes through in the wines.
Walter has attracted favourable press for his wines ever since he started up in Séguret in 1998 since when he has emerged as the leading producer in this small picturesque Southern Rhône village. Parker points the right side of 90, two consecutive Coups de Cœur in the Guide Hachette (for the 2003 and 2004 vintages - but 2005 and 2006 are even better) and numerous other awards and citations can assure all consumers that they have bought a quality wine before they even open the bottle.
You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
