The Grand Vin of Château Phélan Ségur comes from this magnificent terroir of Saint-Estèphe where power dominates. Strengthened by its origins, Château Phélan Ségur has created its identity based on elegance and finesse. With a certain restraint and great precision, it 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. Exceptional vintages born of the generosity of Nature transcended by the talent of man. Beyond these undisputed landmarks, there are vintages dear to the team at the Château. They are witnesses to the life of the property and the expression of great emotions.
Rated 95-96 in barrel tastings by James Suckling.

Winemaker Notes

Philippe Van de Vyvere

Chateau Phelan Segur

by Philippe Van de Vyvere
The 2020 vintage was marked by a record amount of rainfall between October and June, as well as a very mild spring. The very dry month of July was followed by several rainy days in August, which allowed the vines to continue their vegetative cycle. The optimal climatic conditions of September favored the phenolic maturity and perfect sanitary condition of the vines.
