In 1994, Henri de Lanzac, cousin of Christophe Delorme from Domaine de la Mordorée, purchased the Domaine and began to improve the quality of the wine. "Ségriès" in provencal meands "water spring". This family owned and operated winery is located in Lirac and produces some of the best values in my portfolio. They produce the following A.O.C. wines:
* Tavel Rosé
* Côtes du Rhône Rouge
* Lirac Rouge
* Lirac Blanc
" An old Lirac estate with recent signs of revival under the new owners; the reds are medium weight, good to drink inside six years; charming Tavel." - Anthony Dias Blue's pocket guide to wine 2006.
The Domaine Château de Ségriès owns 44.5 hectares of vineyard land (108.91 acres) all in old vines, 30 hectares in one piece alone:
- 7 ha (17.30 acres) in Tavel, on limestone, pebble stone, sand and clay based soils.
- 30 ha (74.10 acres) in Lirac, on clay and limestone based soils.
- 4 ha (9.88 acres) in Côtes du Rhône.
- 3.5 other ha (8.65 acres) in Côtes du Rhône for the "Clos de l'Hermitage"
Many of the vines date back to 1925, and were planted by the former owner Count de Regis de Gatimel.
