About Chateau de Segries:

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. "Segries" in provencal means "water spring". This family owned and operated winery is located in Lirac, along the right back of the Rhone river just opposite to Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

The Chateau produces the following A.O.C wines:

Tavel Rose
Cotes du Rhone Rouge
Lirac Rouge
Lirac Blanc

Chateau de Segries owns 44.5 hectares of vineyard land, 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 Cotes du Rhone.
3.5 other ha (8.65 acres) in Côtes du Rhone 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.
