Château Haut-Segottes

Taste the art of blending! Most of the best restaurants in the Saint-Émilion area carry this red wine on their list. Very expressive with blackberry and cassis flavours evolving from sweet fruit to cedar and vanilla before returning to fruit for a very long finish.

From an exceptional 9 hectare plot that shares the same terroir as Grand Cru Classé A Château Chaval Blanc. The iron-rich red soil is unique in Saint-Émilion, helping the grapes fully ripen even in difficult years. The vines are farmed organically using biodynamic methods. Fermentation is spontaneous in concrete vats, ageing for 12 months in oak.

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.

Chateau Haut-Segottes

Since 1850, the Domain has grown to its current size of 9 hectares spread over four sectors, mainly around the chateau, following successive inheritances and marriages. Danielle Meunier continues the work of four generations, attentive as always to the constraints as well as the potential of nature.
