Chateau Seguin isn't a property which steals headlines, although Robert Parker gave it 91-93 in vintage 2009 and Swiss wine critic, Rene Gabriel loves it.
It's situated in Canejan village close to Pessac and its appellation is Pessac-Leognan. Darriet family owns it and the man in charge is Denis Darriet, who before coming to Seguin, worked in Paris as jeweler for famous jewelry makers like f.i. Cartier and made special creations for the most famous celebrities in the world.
I became very impressed with the wines during my first visit at Seguin in September 2010, and then in March 2011, I had a vertical there from vintage 2004 to 2010. I must admit I was left breathless while tasting 2010. This was an outstanding if not sensantional performance. Unforgetable visit. Visits in September 2011, March 2012, September 2012, March 2013, September 2013, April 2014, September 2014 and March 2015 have just confirmed the staggering quality Seguin possesses today. It seems like Denis Darriet has transferred his skills and dedication from making very expensive jewelry to his wines! He makes normal cuvée, Chateau Seguin and luxury cuvée from old wines, Confidence(s) de Chateau Seguin. The latter is 2-3 times the price of normal cuvée.”
