While time overshadows the royal aristocracy, a Romanian wine promises to rediscover a century-old world and keep its spirit alive.

The Blue Train wine range was created for the international market, and its name has a deep relevance, both for the history of the country and for the domain itself, being at the same time memorable and easily recognized as a symbol throughout the world. The Blue Train has been the train of the European aristocracy since the dawn of the twentieth century. In Romania, the “Blue Train” lived a glorious life: built for Carol I, the train always carried on its ways through the century, the kings and aristocrats of Romania to important duties and witnessed a turbulent history. Enjoying the Blue Train range of RED, white and rose wines, you manage to capture for a moment the richness of that life, where principles, values, intrigues create baroque palace stories. This way you feel that you can be contemporary, for a moment, with that history lived with high passion.

WHITE / DRY

Sauvignon Blanc

A classic, strong and expressive Sauvignon Blanc. Aging on fine yeasts in a tank and doubled by long fermentation is what gives this wine a seductive palette of tones, from the usual notes, herbaceous and of Sambucus, to those of exotic fruits and peaches, both olfactory and gustatory.

WHITE / DRY

Fetească Albă

An energizing and comforting wine, excellent for hot days. Although this traditionally Romanian variety is used extremely often for the creation of popular wines, in Segarcea it finds its true nobility, which ensures the richness of grape aromas. The wine is soft, almost fragile, with intense aromas of white flowers and freshly blossomed acacia. The taste dominated by freshness, almost crunchy, reveals a citric acidity that balances the whole excellently.

WHITE / DRY

Chardonnay

A classic Chardonnay, as intended and achieved: lightly pressed grapes, long fermentation, maturation on fine yeasts in oak barrels, all to obtain a balanced, complex and full-bodied ensemble. The complex aromas are dominated by fruit and complemented by secondary shades of butter, freshly fried hazelnuts and anise flowers.

Tasteful, it is extremely rich, almost heavy, with a solid structure of fruit and butter, finished in a wide and long aftertaste.

WHITE / DRY

Tămâioasă Românească

An energizing and comforting wine, excellent for hot days. Although the variety, traditionally Romanian, is used extremely often for the creation of popular wines, in Segarcea it finds its true nobility, which ensures the richness of grape aromas. The wine is soft, almost fragile, with intense aromas of white flowers and freshly blossomed acacia. The taste is dominated by freshness, almost crunchy, reveals a citric acidity that balances the whole excellently.

ROSÉ / DRY

Rosé

A variety saved from extinction that, after the 2002 relaunch of the Segarcea vineyard, managed to find its international recognition in just a few years of existence on the market, winning the Gold Medal at the International Wine Challenge, in Bordeaux, in 2012.

The achievement is all the greater as the jury, with an obvious inclination towards dry wines, considered this semi-sweet wine worthy of the highest distinction. The distinctive aromas – of well-cooked peach, white apricots and RED berries – build a delicate but strong bouquet. The same aromas are found in the taste, but the finish leaves behind a long note of petals and rose marmalade.

RED / DRY

Pinot Noir

The most fragile and difficult grape variety from which red wine is born, Pinot Noir easily finds its resources in the land of Segarcea to create a strong and expressive wine, without compromising its characteristic finesse.

Enriched by the 6-8 months maturation in first and second-generation French oak barrels, it has – both olfactory and gustatory – only fine tones of wood and vanilla. The smell is dominated by fruits – cherries, pomegranates – with spicy accents. Gustatory, it is excellently balanced between fruit notes and liquorice, with round tannins, perfectly integrated.

RED / DRY

Fetească Neagră

Considered by many to be the flagship variety of Romania, Feteasca Neagră appeared relatively recently in the Segarcea vineyard, but with amazing results, as evidenced by this wine which, even from the first harvests, managed to win gold medals at the China Wine Awards, in 2012 and silver in 2010 (Decanter World Wine Awards) and 2011 (Vinalies Internationales).

It is a round, integrated, elegant wine, with a clear fruit-dominated onset, which then layers, revealing a strong tannin structure doubled by notes of jam, wood and vanilla.

RED / DRY

Merlot

A wine created in a classic spirit, beginning with the harvest reduced to 6 tons/ha, to the year spent in French oak barrels, followed by a period of one year of ageing in bottle to integrate the flavours acquired from the contact with the wood. The result is a full-bodied, sober wine, with a dominant aroma of berries, the sharpness of aromatic herbs, all wrapped in the unmistakable aroma of wood and vanilla of a barrique wine.

The taste reveals a complex structure of the wine, with fruit aromas complemented by subtle shades of roasted wood, spices and liquorice.

RED / DRY

Cabernet Sauvignon

The quality of the Cabernet in Oltenia is already well-known, and the one in Segarcea is no exception. If confirmation was needed, it was brought by the gold medal won in 2010 at the Séléctions Mondiales du Vin in Quebec, Canada. The wine groups an extremely wide spectrum of aromas, due to the long maceration for almost eight weeks and the 8-18 months of maturation in oak barrels.

The same vinification process essentially contributes to the extraction of tannins and to obtaining a deep colour. The aromas vary from jams to fresh fruits and vanilla, the olfactory dimension being confirmed in taste, where the well-integrated tannins and the athletic body are complemented by a long and ample aftertaste.
