A brief history

Joseph Marie de Ségur de Cabanac would be delighted to see the loving care lavished on the details of the buildings and on the crafting of the wines of Bessan Ségur.

This constant drive to be in harmony with history, the landscape and above all the finished product is the foremost concern of Rémi LACOMBE.

Sorting on the root stock, cold maceration, barrel ageing and logistics are the means deployed here to enhance the terroir and serve taste.

The colossal investments over the last five years have made Bessan Ségur a pre-eminent estate in the Médoc appellation. Its wines are homogenous and improve from year to year.

Bessan Ségur dates back a long way, to the 15th century. In 1740, the château belonged to Joseph de Ségur (Squire of Latour d’Eyquem, of Bordeaux and other places). Louis XV described him as being « the richest lord in his kingdom with lands producing nectar and diamonds ». Over the years, Bessan became the country seat of the Counts of Ségur. The passing centuries have left the terroir intact. The omnipresent cracked limestone bedrock ensures a permanent, parsimonious but rarely excessive water supply. Such conditions are essential for the crafting of a great, concentrated wine, rich in tannins and colour.
