Minima Moralia Honor


“The greatest way to live with honor in this world is to be what we pretend to be.”
— Socrates

Fetească Albă,
Barrelled Chardonnay,
Unbarralled Chardnonnay,
Sauvignon Blanc,
Pinot Gris

The grapes for Minima Moralia Honor were hand-harvested.

Fetească albă, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris were pressed directly, whereas for Chardonnay we chose skin-contact maceration for 12 hours.

Part of Chardonnay was aged in new and second use French oak barrels for 6 months and for the rest, aging was made in stainless steel tanks, with bâtonnage (stirring of the lees).

An « alchemic » blend and one which respects the everlasting rules which created, in the past, a « regional assortment”. Thus, a wine was born whose debut on the nose is explosive, starting by white pollen, dry flowers, elder tree and vanilla.

After airing the flavors are dominated by honey, fruit flesh and acacia. The mouthfeel confirm the complexity of the flavors, with the core element – fruitiness, wrapped in extreme sensations. On the one hand there is the freshness defined by the high acidity and on the other hand the vanilla flavors of a mature wine, comprised in a round, solid, glyceric body.

Recommended serving temperature 11ºC – 13ºC.

Domeniul Coroanei Segarcea spreads over a blessed terroir with mild sun and harsh soil, like a precious mixture of basic nature and high-altitude human character.

Segarcea estate lies on the 44° parallel, known as „the quality parallel”, in the Southern region of Romania called Oltenia, 25 km away from Craiova city and 70 km away from the Danube. In Segarcea, vinegrowing is favoured by the terroir. The vines spread over the last hills that lead to the Danube. In the past, these hills were at the bottom of a sea which rose like a limestone pedestal covered nowadays by a chernozem bedding.

At least 1440 hours of sunshine annually, from the 1st of April to the 31th of October, favor especially the red varieties, without discouraging the whites. The annual rainfall raises up to 565 mm and the average annual temperatures reach 11 degrees Celsius. Ideal conditions to create strong character wines.

Segarcea — “the land of dream” as its Latin roots predict — is one of the twelve domains that the Royal House of Romania took under administration during Carol I, King of Romania, in 1884, by Parliament decision. This is how the Administration of the Royal Domains (ADC) was established.

The role of the royal domains was to support financially the Royal House, but also to become agricultural hubs in the avant-garde of technology and knowhow.

Among these domains, Segarcea was assigned the role of vineyard and winery, under the supervision of distinguished agronomists and winegrowers coordinated by Florian Davidescu and Dobre Radulescu.

Ever since, the wines from Domeniul Coroanei Segarcea have accompanied the country’s kings and statesmen to diplomatic receptions and witnessed history making, like a faithful servant.
