Founded in the late 19th century by Jean Dupuy, then French Minister of Agriculture, Chateau Segonzac covers a little over 43 ha on a sunny hillside which directly overlooks the Gironde with sunny exposure that runs from South to Northwest. This bucolic setting, as well as the rich clay and limestone subsoil is home to this lovely and elegant red made from Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. A regal purple in the glass, this critically acclaimed charmer is just entering its prime. It’s structured and firm, with heft and smooth, dense tannins that accentuate the bright red fruit, vanilla, spice and coffee notes. Drink now with a host of cheeses and roasted meats, or hold through 2032.
