Owner Henri de Lanzac purchased Château de Ségriès in 1994 from Count Henri de Regis, founder of the Lirac AOC. They use grapes from what is perhaps the best terroir for red wine, the windy Vallongue plateau. The vineyards on this plateau are full of ‘galets roulés’ – these hard, dense silica-rolled pebbles absorb heat during the day & return it to the vines at night. Their presence also allows for deep vine roots, which results in outstanding terroir. Ségriès owns 58 hectares of old vines in Lirac, Tavel & Côtes-du-Rhône AOC’s.
