Château Phélan Ségur is a Cru Bourgeois St. Estèphe property that produces textbook meaty, solid and long-lived St. Estèphes. It was bought by Xavier Gardinier in 1985 and is now run by his sons, Thierry, Stéphane and Laurent. Phélan Ségur’s 66 hectares of vineyards are well-sited near the Grionde estuary and lies on well drained gravel soils. Irish origins, three families and more than two centuries of passion, respect for the terroir and innovation in the service of a great name. Since 1985, the Gardinier brothers have ensured the prestige of the Château and its heritage. The three Garidinier brothers perpetuate the values and the chivalrous spirit of its creators, men of heart and of conviction.
