Château de Ségriès
In 1994, Henri de Lanzac, cousin of Christophe Delorme from Domaine de la Mordorée, purchased the Domaine and began to improve the quality of the wine. "Ségriès" in provencal means "water spring". This family owned and operated winery is located in Lirac and produces some of the best values in my portfolio. They produce the following A.O.C. wines: Tavel Rosé, Côtes du Rhône Rouge, Lirac Rouge, Lirac Blanc.
"An old Lirac estate with recent signs of revival under the new owners; the reds are medium weight, good to drink inside six years; charming Tavel." - Anthony Dias Blue's pocket guide to wine 2006
"A super value treasure trove in the southern Rhone, Segries is a large estate of 109 acres brought back to life over the last decade by Henri de Lanzac. The wines continue to go from strength to strength."- Wine Advocate (#178, Aug. 2008)
Segries manages 58 hectares of old vines (80-100 years), 30 of which are in one piece in the heart of the appellation Lirac (Gard). Present on 3 appellations: AOP Tavel, Lirac and Ribs Rhone (with the domain Jean Alési). Their agronomic model reduces yields to focus on quality and uses processes size short and restricted use of conventional fertilizers. Mainly harvested by hand, vinified traditionally, favoring Grenache, the Ségriès have body, heat & roundness. Clay-calcareous soils make an essential contribution to the quality of the harvested wine, as well as the cultivation methods and the classical grape varieties used.
