The wine estate
The Château de Seguin wine estate covers 173 hectares in one piece, including 95 hectares of vines.
The 95 hectare vineyard in one piece is made up of 91.5 ha of vines producing Bordeaux Supérieur Rouge and 3.5 ha producing Bordeaux Blanc or Crémant.
The terroir of Château de Seguin is made up of a mosaic of soils typical of the viticultural geology of the Entre Deux Mers. Essentially, these are clay-limestone hillsides, with a strongly stony subsoil, and sometimes steep slopes. According to the plots, there are strong and clayey soils, suitable for a good expression of Merlot, and lighter soils, sometimes sandy, sometimes stony, sometimes silty, always warm and filtering where Cabernets find a chosen ground.
The Castle and its history
The Château de Seguin in its current silhouette dates from 1780. It was at this time that it was built, with its two pointed towers and its long wine cellars.
The History of Château De Seguin is in fact much older, since it is necessary to go back a thousand years earlier, in 780 exactly, to find the trace of the Count of Seguin, administrator of Emperor Charlemagne.
A very old noble past is therefore attached to this land, and the impressive number of its buildings shows that the property was always dedicated to agriculture, livestock and wine.
The numerous and vast cellars allow working in optimal conditions during the vinification, aging and aging of Château de Seguin wines.
The wine cellars have around forty thermo-regulated vats allowing our cellar master to exercise his talent as a winemaker. The large number of vinification tanks means that each plot and each grape variety can be closely monitored before blending.
The aging in barrels, lasting 12 months, takes place in four cellars that can accommodate up to 1200 barrels. After bottling at the château, the bottles will be stored in the best conditions of temperature, humidity, calm and darkness before reaching your cellars and tables around the world.
