Chateau De Segries

This 3-generation family estate currently manages 58 hectares of old vines (80 years on average) - 30 of which are in one single piece in the heart of the Lirac appellation (Gard). They produce wine in three appellations - TAVEL, LIRAC and CÔTES DU RHÔNE (with the Jean Alesi estate).
This family owned and operated winery produces some of the best values in our portfolio. In 1994, Henri de Lanzac, cousin of the late 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".

The Domaine Château de Ségriès owns 58 hectares of vineyard land (143 acres), all in old vines, 30 hectares in one piece alone:
- 11 ha (27 acres) in Tavel, on limestone, pebble stone, sand and clay based soils.
- 36 ha (89 acres) in Lirac, on clay and limestone based soils.
- 7 ha (17 acres) in Côtes du Rhône.
- 4 ha (10 acres) in Côtes du Rhône for the "Clos Jean Alesi"
Many of the vines date back to 1925, and were planted by the former owner Count de Regis de Gatimel.
The clay-limestone based soils contribute in an essential way to the quality of the wines, in the same way as the cultivation method and the traditional grape varieties that are used. The cultivation method reduces yields to favor quality, and uses short-term processes and limited use of traditional fertilizers. Mainly harvested by hand, vinified traditionally, privileging Grenache, Ségriès wines have body, warmth, roundness.
