Château Phelan Ségur - Saint-Estèphe

The Château Phelan Ségur is a wine estate located between château Montrose and Château Calon-Ségur.

What are the specificities of Château Phelan Ségur?

The official history of the Château Phelan Segur begins with the bringing together of two Bordeaux vineyards, Clos de Garramey and Segur. The properties were grouped together by Bernard Phelan, who, in the tradition of the time, combined the existing Segur name with his own and the Château Phelan Segur was born. In 1860, Bernard Phelan created the largest vineyard in the Saint Estephe appellation.

After passing through the hands of the Delon family, owner of the Château Leoville Las Cases in Saint Julien and Nenin in Pomerol, it's the Gardinier family who became the owners in 1984.

Today, the property on the left bank in Saint Estèphe is managed by Thierry Gardinier. He is also responsible for several other Bordeaux vineyards including Château Meyney in Saint Estèphe and Château Grand Puy Ducasse in Pauillac.

In August 2017, Château Phelan Ségur was sold for more than 90 million euros! The vineyard was sold to the rich Belgian investor Philippe Van de Vyvere.

 

The vineyard practices reasoned viticulture in a logic of respect for the vines and more generally for the environment.

The vineyard has a terroir of gravel, sand and clay. The vines are mainly spread over three sites. 8 hectares of vines are planted near the château. However, their best terroir, which is also their largest vineyard, is located very close to the Château Montrose.

  • Cabernet Sauvignon 45%
  • Merlot 50 %
  • Cabernet Franc 4%
  • Petit Verdot 1%
