Château Phélan Ségur lies in the commune of Saint-Estèphe in the Bordeaux region of France, where power dominates, neighbouring vineyards Château Calon-Ségur and Château Montrose. Strengthened by its origins, Château Phélan Ségur has created its identity based on elegance and finesse. In a 2003 Cru Bourgeois classification revision, it was listed as one of 9 Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnels.
With a certain restraint and great precision, Chateau Phelan Segur reveals the purity of the fruit, the accuracy of its structure, the silkiness of its tannins, all with a natural freshness. After long ageing, it reveals a bouquet of a rare complexity, the oak harmoniously integrated. This subtle and authentic balance creates an intense emotion.
Château Phélan Ségur is known for its potential to age over several decades. An old vintage opens new aromatic horizons with an unexpected richness: the warmth of spices, the generosity of ripe fruits and the nobility of leather. Its texture is refined, its power is calmed. This fullness is a testimony to the passage of time and this blossoming is the reward of astute patience.
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.
