Located in the village of Saint-Estèphe, Château Phélan Ségur has proudly overlooked the Gironde estuary since the early 19th century. Its history is intimately linked with that of the Médoc.
Founded by Irishman Bernard Phélan when he united Clos de Garramey and Domaine Ségur de Cabanac, the estate was developed by his son, Frank, and renamed Phélan Ségur in the early 20th century.
Consisting of seventy hectares of vines divided into four distinct parts, the great diversity of the terroir accounts for Phélan Ségur’s complexity. The cellar and vat room are integrated into the château in a highly unusual architectural ensemble. The wines are aged with the greatest of care and Phélan Ségur is famous for its elegance, finesse and balance.
After more than thirty years in charge of the property, the Gardinier family has decided to pass on the reins to Philippe Van de Vyvere. For this great wine enthusiast, taking over this prestigious growth is the fulfilment of one of his most cherished Dreams.
