Phélan Ségur

Philippe Van de Vyvere
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.

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.  Initiated by his grandfather at an early age, this great connoisseur of Bordeaux was really taken with the Château.
Philippe Van de Vyvere intends to apply his entrepreneurial values in pursuit of aesthetic and technical excellence while respecting environmental balances.
