Lionel is an oenologist and vineyard manager at Pierre Fabre's estate, laboratories of the same name, to complement the work already carried out by this renowned company manager, who has put quality at the centre of attention since the estate's creation in 1989. Working the grapes from the beginning to the bottling stage allowed him to have an overview. This results in wines full of aromas, created for your greatest pleasure!Lire plus Learn more
Today, the estate consists of 36 hectares and seven grape varieties selected for their quality. These grape varieties have been carefully planted according to their adaptation to our terroirs. Our sandy clay plots produce the most fruity wines, while our gravel plots, made of rolled pebbles brought in by the Agout River, will produce 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 autumn, with cool nights after the strong heat of the day. Always in the search for the autonomy of the vine, we do not use fertilizers. We only harvest 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 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 is the race with the partridges which with their delicacies can go faster than us.
The estate was created in 1989 by 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 his terroir. Following the refusal of local winegrowers to join the PDO, Mr Pierre Fabre sought to develop the quality of the wine and vines in the Domaine D'en Ségur's own name.
Lionel, an oenologist by training, first directed the vine part and then, following Caroline Schaller's departure, 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.
