This wine is one of the reasons we belong to Opimian. Priced at only $17.00 per bottle (Canadian), it came in a nice wooden crate, which hinted at what we would find inside. Chateau Pique-Segue is one of those gems that you don’t run across regularly, which is part of the value of a purchasing group like Opimian. It appears to be a smaller winery, producing about 500,000 bottles per year. In fact, here in Ontario, it doesn’t look like the Liquor Board carries any Bergerac wine at all.
She said: It’s not a super robust wine, but still has enough tannins that it will do better with food than on its own. I certainly get some nice pepper, but like most Bordeaux wines, it doesn’t have that “in your face” fruit hit – it’s more subtle and complex. For the price, it’s a great wine to have on hand.
He said: Purple colour with abundant flavour intensity, I get flavours of plum, oak, smoky, pepper and chocolate. It’s dry with medium complexity, medium body and a long finish. Serve with roast beef, old cheddar. Would definitely recommend this wine.
