The directory of Bordeaux wines Cocks et Féret heaped praise on the nineteenth century wines.
At this time, they were the closest to the essence of Haut-Brion though this was not enough to sustain the label. After a lengthy period of decline, Denis Darriet, a Parisian jeweller, undertook a renaissance of his own. By acquiring the 31 hectares of vineyards in 1987. Then, by bringing his commitment to quality to winemaking. It’s not by chance that the special cuvée Confidence(s) de Château Seguin has become the very symbol of the precision that Darriet’s team dedicate to their art.
Current yield is 130,000 bottles per year. However, significant replanting and introduction of the latest vineyard were instrumental in bringing to where it is today. The vineyard is divided equally between Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Gravel, sandy soil and clay make up the terroir. And Darriet is on record as saying that they try to preserve as much of the characteristics of the soil as possible. Right up to bottling. The proximity of pine forests and the Atlantic contribute to the beneficial climate. It is indeed vital for the balanced, colourful reds of Château Seguin.
