Bronze - Roger, Voss Wine Enthusiast
Bronze - Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast (2015 vintage)

Silver - Concours General Agricole Paris

8% Petit Verdot, 8% Malbec, 26% Cabernet-sauvignon, 58% Merlot

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast "Well balanced and ready to drink, this wine offers generous black fruits and acidity. Its light structure gives the wine shape."

Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast "This structured wine comes from a chateau in the the eastern Entre-deux-Mers. Firm tannins and acidity combine well with juicy black-currant flavors. A dry core indicates that the wine will age." (2015 vintage)

Wine Library "Tasting prifile includes currant, black cherry, plum, bell pepper, olive, oak, smoke, toast, tar, blackberry, cherry, asparagus, spice, ginger and vanilla."

The House of Ségur is an old French winery dating back to the 9th century. The Marquis de Ségur, Nicholas Alexandre (1697 – 1755) was the largest owner of vineyards in Bordeaux (owning three First Growths: Latour, Lafite and Mouton) which earned him the nickname “Prince of Vines” from King Louis XV. Under the Marquis' influence, the wines of Chateau Lafite became firmly established in the London market. British Prime Minister Robert Walpole was a frequent customer, purchasing a barrel every three months.

Today’s 47-hectare vineyard, planted in 1992, is owned by Gisèle and Daniel Vidal – it is situated on a vast limestone plateau overlooking the breathtaking Segur Valley.

Bordeaux, in the southwest of France, needs little introduction as one of the world's most famous, prestigious and prolific wine regions. Its three trump cards are diversity, quality and quantity. The majority of Bordeaux wines (nearly 90 percent of production volume) are the dry, medium- and full-bodied red Bordeaux Blends that established its reputation.

The finest (and most expensive) of these come from the great châteaux of the Haut-Médoc and the Right Bank appellations Saint-Émilion and Pomerol. The legendary reds are complemented by high-quality white wines, both dry styles (particularly from Pessac-Léognan) and the sweet, botrytized nectars of Sauternes.

A Bordeaux Blend is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux. Cabernet Sauvignon is widely accepted as a compulsory component of any Bordeaux Blend along with Merlot. In fact, the majority of Bordeaux Blend wines are often made exclusively from a blend of these two varieties. The remaining components are Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec.
