<<< Madame Meunier’s great-grandfather purchased the estate around 1860 and had earned gold medals for his wine as early as 1912 at the Concours Agricole in Paris. In 1959, the estate began to bottle its wine in earnest.In 1972 Madame Meunier took the reins of production and we can proudly stake our claim as one of her first and most loyal clients:we have been purchasing her wines since the 1977 vintage. The 9 hectares Chateau Haut Segottes are all planted within the St. Emilion Grand Cru appellation. The vineyards are planted 60% to Merlot, 35% to Cabernet Franc, and 5% to Cabernet Sauvignon. The position of the vineyards within the appellation is outstanding.Parcels are found within the "lieu-dits" of Fortin (across from La Dominique and 300 meters from Cheval Blanc); Chauvin; and the highly regarded “Plateau de Corbin”.Production levels average 45 hectoliters per hectare.Haut Segottes bottles between 30,000 to 40,000 bottles per year.
