Range (grande champagne): VSOP, XO.
They also produce cognacs with the label Garde Marine.
Update January 2017: Domaine du Breuil de Ségonzac is being taken over by the American company Sazerac from New Orleans. The deal includes the mansion, the vineyards, the distillery and the stock. The existing production team will stay in place and the company will also be open for visitors.
Manager: Clive Carpenter.
The vineyards must have been expanded in the last few years, because the deal mentions 220 acres (89 hectares) of land.
