Séguret (like Mittelbergheim, home of Boeckel) is one of France’s officially designated “100 Most Beautiful Villages”. With its strikingly pebbly soils, it is also the source of some of the best-structured and finest wines of the Côtes du Rhône, albeit some of the least known of those enjoying the superior “Villages” status.
Ch. La Courançonne is a perennial gold medal winner at the local and national wine fairs, and with good reason. They make wines that are strong, unflashy, pure and faithful to local tradition. Judging by how fast we have been selling out, California is waking up to their quality. Sadly, our friend Gérard Meffre died last year, but his son Ludovic, a professional pilot, has taken over the reins and we are full of hope for the future of this splendid domaine.
