Château Roc de Segur is located in Landerrouet sur Ségur, in the eastern part of l’Entre Deux Mers, south of Sauveterre de Guyenne. The property was purchased and the vineyard planted by Gisèle and Daniel Vidal in 1992. The stones of this beautiful area of our region have been used in the 18th Century to build the magnificent city of Bordeaux leaving many quarries in the village. Thus the cellars are built directly inside the rocks enabling a perfect ageing, giving strength and refinement to the wine. In 1994, a large winery was carved into the rock to receive the harvest, and vinify the grapes, and age the wine. The vidals have made significant investments in their facilities since then, and continue to improve their product with each vintage.
~ Tasting Notes ~ Château Roc de Segur is supple and fruity, with a pleasant nose. The palate is round and well structured with silky tannins, which will evolve favorably with age; it has a deep aroma of red fruit mingled with spices of licorice and black currant. An extremely well balanced and elegant wine. 86 Points. BEST BUY!! Still young, this rich wine has a stalky character that contrasts with the ripe black currant flavors and good acidity. With a few months aging, this will fill out and be attractive and fruity. Drink from 2016. - RV
