Located in the village of Saint-Estèphe, Château Phélan Ségur has proudly overlooked the Gironde estuary since the early 19th century.
Founded by Irishman, Bernard Phelan, the estate was developed by his son, Frank, and renamed Phélan Ségur in the early 20th century. The cellar and the vat room are integrated into the Château in a highly unsual architectural ensemble.
The property is spread over 114 hectares, including 44 hectares of parks, forests, meadows, streams and ponds, forming a remarkable biodiversity reserve. Its 70 hectares of vineyards benefit from the temperature regulation provided by the proximity of the River; they are divided into four very distinct islands and express the diversity of the clay-gravel soils of the appellation.
This produces powerful wines often characterised by their tannic structure. The Phélan Ségur style stands out for its elegance, its pure and complex aromas, the quality of its tannins and its balance.
Philippe Van de Vyvere is the owner since January 2018. Initiated by his grandfather at an early age, this great connoisseur of Bordeaux was really taken with the Château Phélan Ségur.
He intends to apply his entrepreneurial values in pursuit of aesthetic and technical while respecting environmental balances.
