Taste the art of blending! Very expressive with blackberry and cassis flavours and a lovely mouthfeel. Most of the best restaurants in the St Emilion area have one thing in common – they carry this red wine on their list.

Wine Makers

Chateau Haut-Segottes. 2009 by Danielle Meunier

Danielle Meunier continues the work of four generations past and is always aware of the constraints, as well as the potential, of nature. Her viticulture is thorough and she is constantly looking to previous years' experience, while at the same time she realises "you have to accept what nature gives you".

 

Assisted by Cyrille Valadier in the vineyard and David Harte in the cellar, Danielle Meunier is both winemaker and oenologist, with the aim of constantly improving the quality of the Domain's work. The position of the vineyards within the appellation is outstanding. Parcels are found within the localities of Fortin, Chauvin; and the highly regarded “Plateau de Corbin”, very close to Figeac and Cheval Blanc.

 

Danielle's great-grandfather purchased the estate around 1860 and had earned gold medals for his wine as early as 1912 at the Concours Agricole in Paris. In 1959, the estate began to bottle its wine in earnest and in 1972 Madame Meunier took over the reins. 

 

Danielle Meunier is an extraordinarily meticulous wine producer, whose work is respectful of the environment and of the winemaking traditions in the region. Her cave is impeccably organized and scrupulously clean. The vineyards are tended with the utmost of care and her obsession with, and dedication to, these vineyards enables Madame Meunier’s Haut Ségottes to produce exceptional quality year-in and year-out despite the vagaries of the weather. The wines of this estate capture the essence of the artisanal craftsperson.
