Today, the 38-hectare estate is made up of seven grape varieties selected for their qualities. These grape varieties have been meticulously planted according to their adaptation to our terroirs. Our sandy-clay plots give the fruitiest wines while our gravel plots, made up of rolled pebbles brought by the river Agout, give the most concentrated wines. Thanks to the proximity of the river we benefit from a microclimate favourable to a beautiful maturity of the grapes in the autumn, with cool nights after the heat of the day.
Always in the search of an autonomy of the vine, we do not bring any fertilizer. We harvest only the quantities that the vine can give us naturally.
Depending on the vigour of the vines, we allow the plant cover to develop completely on some plots or alternately on others. Biodiversity is thus promoted.
The grape harvest is triggered by observing the surrounding nature: Sauvignon Blanc reaches its optimum maturity when the blackberries around the plot are delicious!
For the Merlot harvest, it's a race with partridges who, with their delicacy, can go faster than us.
The estate was created in 1989 by the pharmacist Pierre Fabre, founder of the laboratories of the same name.
Passionate about botany and the products of the land, Mr Pierre Fabre, attached to this family land, wanted to build wines that reflect the image of his terroir. Following the refusal of the local winegrowers to join the PDO, Mr Pierre Fabre sought to develop the quality of the wine and the vines under his own name of Domaine D'en Ségur.
Lionel, an oenologist by training, first managed the vineyard part and then, following the departure of Caroline Schaller, took over the winemaking part.
I chose the profession of winegrower to keep a link with nature and to be able to create from A to Z a product that brings pleasure to those who consume it.
Since I was a child, I have always loved to eat and make culinary discoveries. As I grew up, I discovered the world of wine and the magic of gastronomic combinations.
I am a fan of Sauvignon Blanc my dream would be to go around the world of Sauvignon Blanc! In general I like aromatic wines.
While working in the Jurançon region, I had the chance to meet a passionate and exciting man, Mr Henri Ramonteu, Domaine Cauhapé, who calls himself an aroma tamer and who produces great wines.
I like the friendly aspect brought by a bottle. You never open a bottle with someone you don't like. My personal touch is to seek to have aromatic and clean wines, whether for light wines of pleasure or more concentrated. I am transported by the pleasure of discovering wines from different regions and continents. The intellectualization of tasting annoys me, I am more interested in pleasure than in the chemical analysis of wine.
