About the Estate

Domaine Serguier - Respect de la Tradition

Respect for Châteauneuf du Pape tradition

Thanks to its AOC decree, which limits yields to 35 hectolitres per hectare and which specifies the grape varieties (13 in total), pruning predominantly by the gobelet method and a minimum alcohol content of 12.5%, the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation guarantees wines of consistently high quality.

These regulations help us to produce great wines, but we also try to let nature take its course, monitoring any changes and only intervening when appropriate. We reserve different vintages each year, leaving them for as long as it takes for them to reach their full expression.

Wine is a living product, which matures and ages in cellars, away from the light and human beings.

Les générations du Domaine Serguier

Each generation
has made its own contribution

It is thanks to the work of previous generations (Daniel’s great-grandfather and grandfather) that we can cultivate three 85- to 104-year-old Grenache vines. These refined and delicate old Grenache grapes with their low yields are now used in the production of our Cuvée Révélation.

Thanks to Daniel’s work since 1997, which has included re-cultivating plots, introducing grape varieties such as Syrah and Cinsault and establishing a collection of 13 varieties, we can now exploit the full potential of each terroir and produce our Cuvée Tradition Châteauneuf du Pape red wine. The same goes for our Châteauneuf du Pape white wine, which is produced from grapes grown at Coste Froide.

A philosophy on work...and life

To ensure that our products are of the finest quality, we wait until our wines are fully mature so they best exemplify the appellation. But it is the terroirs, the vintages and the weather which define our products; we are merely the supporting actor – and much less the protagonist.

Conscious of the need to work with nature, we are committed to an agricultural approach which respects the interests of future generations.

Some plots in the Châteauneuf du Pape and Côtes du Rhône appellations have been planted with grass, which is just mown, so that the soil can be naturally enriched and aerated by microorganism (earthworms and insects).

Our plots in Châteauneuf du Pape and Lirac are maintained and their flora and fauna diversified through the planting of trees and shrubs (olive trees, apricot trees, oaks, prickly juniper, rosemary, thyme…). As well as creating a harmonious landscape, these ecosystems encourage pollinating insects (bees) and provide a haven for wildlife (birds, hares and rodents).
