65% Cabernet Franc, 35% Merlot; 40-year old vines.

"The Chateau Haut Ségottes is owned and operated by Danielle Meunier and her assistant, Florent Caldier. Mme. Meunier, 'vigneronne extraordinaire,' is the fourth generation of her family to oversee this nine hectare estate situated in the heart of the Saint Emilion appellation. Mme. Meunier’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.

The estate’s 9 hectares are all planted within the St. Emilion Grand Cru appellation. The vineyards are tended with the utmost of care by Madame Meunier and her long-serving trio of master “gardeners”. Her obsession with, and dedication to her 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.

Although the majority of the vineyards are planted to Merlot, the ultimate cuvée bottled as Chateau Haut Segottes Saint Emilion Grand Cru features a majority of Cabernet Franc. This dominance of Cabernet Franc produces a wine of considerable structure and is exceptionally age-worthy."
