Ségur de Cabanac 2013 is 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, it has a clear, bright ruby hue with just a hint of garnet. Toasty overtones on the nose alongside black fruit, rich plum, blackberry and pepper lead to a full-bodied, fresh, vibrant wine with great structure and mouthfeel on the palate. A very attractive and hugely successful wine from this challenging vintage.
CHÂTEAU SÉGUR DE CABANAC, St-Estèphe New!
Comte Joseph Marie de Ségur, the Lord of Cabanac, purchased and created this 7.5-ha estate, which still bears his name “Ségur de Cabanac.”
Guy Delon, 7th generation of winegrowers in Bordeaux, took over the property in 1985. Today he continues to manage the estate with his son JF Delon and his daughter Guylène. They also own another Cru Bourgeois, Château Moulin de la Rose in Saint-Julien.
The parcels of this property are situated on the eastern part of Saint-Estephe. The vineyards, composed of gravel, are facing the estuary of the Gironde.
The grapes are hand-harvested and the wine spends 20 months in oak barrels, 30% of which are new. This long ageing in barrels softened the wine and gives it its mellow and velvety trademark.
