Chateau Segonzac Vieilles Vignes Cru Bourgeiois Premier Cotes Blaye France 1998

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £15 from a wine merchant in Sussex.Three appellations,Blaye,Cotes de Blaye and Premieres Cotes de Blaye[the latter for the more prestigious properties] were created in 1936 and they all refer to 40 communes around the town of Blaye on the eastern side of the Gironde estuary in the Bordeaux region.Since 2009 both red and white wines from this area have come under the new Cotes de Bordeaux Blaye appellation.Chateau Segonzac is a well known producer in this area and this cuvee consists of 60% merlot,20% cabernet sauvignon,10% malbec,5% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot and spent 12 months in oak barrels.I started the bottle last night with my supper of roast lamb.There is some blackcurrant and plum style fruit there with a hint of coffee and soft but structured tannins. In short,this is a good example of what a right bank claret should be like.
