Château Les Tours Seguy, now in organic production, is located in the heart of the Côtes de Bourg vineyard in St Ciers de Canesse on the right bank of the Gironde, 30 km north of Bordeaux. This appellation area, where vines were grown in Roman times, represents 3900 hectares of vineyards. Its uneven morphology is often referred to as the "Suisse Girondine" (Gironde Switzerland). The varied nature of its soil, here clayey-siliceous, there clayey-limestone, makes it particularly suitable for the cultivation of vines, while its favourable exposure favours the ripening of its grapes. The surface of the vineyard of Seguy is of 13 hectares and the encépagement (exclusively in red) is in dominance of Merlot (68%), of Cabernet sauvignon and Cabernet franc (24%), and, of Malbec (8%). Located a few kilometers from the Gironde estuary, the estate benefits from a great diversity of terroirs. The soil, the climate and the exposure of each parcel give the wine a characteristic bouquet and flavors. This is what motivates us to harvest and vinify the grapes from each plot separately. The harvest is done preferably in the morning in order to avoid damaging the grapes by excessive heat. After manual sorting and de-stemming in the cellar, the grapes are sent by gravity to the vats. Thanks to temperature control, low temperature fermentations are preferred and carried out with delicacy. Once the fermentations are completed, the blending of the different plots and grape varieties is carried out with the help of experienced oenologists.
One day in February 2014, two men met, one of them, wishing to give up his domain and especially to transmit his experience accumulated for decades, and I, wishing to blossom in the elaboration and the marketing of my wines. After several weekends of exchange and work in the vineyards and in the cellar, an intense relationship was forged. With the 2014 harvest and vinification completed, an agreement was reached to acquire the estate in 2015. Since then, I have continued the investment policy and intensified the actions in favor of the environment. As a son and grandson of a farmer, I apply the values that I was taught and that make up the "good farming sense". The environment, and more generally, sustainable development are at the heart of my concerns. Protecting the women and men involved in their work on the estate, ensuring the economic performance of the company, and preserving our environment, are essential to me. Nature is the most precious thing we have, it deserves constancy and respect. The vine gives the best of itself when it is balanced. Let's give back to nature what it so generously gives us. All our packaging is 100% recyclable and is sourced locally to limit the impact on the environment. Our oak barrel suppliers are also based in the region. Thanks to the treatment of our effluents, our discharges no longer have an impact on the environment. Sulfites are used sparingly at the lowest doses. In 2018, I made the decision to convert the estate to organic production, a nice challenge to take up given the climatic hazards we are experiencing... The 2021 vintage has the "Organic Production" label
A transmission of know-how between each generation of winegrowers and "new blood"! :All the generations of winegrowers who have succeeded each other on this property have the particularity of having previously carried out another activity. In addition to the transmission of know-how between each generation, the "neophytes" have brought new ideas, which has made it possible to sublimate the estate and its wines. The first winegrower was for example a cooper, then a doctor took over. Then Jean-François Breton, a geologist by training, took over the property, deeply restructured and developed it. Finally, he gives me the property with the will to pass on all the knowledge accumulated over the past 20 years. My first profession as a breeder of spices and natural raw materials for perfumes, and my passion for wine and nature, allow me to strive for excellence with a touch of audacity.
