Château Phélan Ségur is located in Saint-Estèphe , in the Bordeaux region. It was classified Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel in 2003. The history of Phélan Ségur dates back to the end of the 18th century, when Bernard O’Phelan, a wine merchant from Tipperary (in Ireland), arrived in Bordeaux. After marrying the famous Guestier family, he bought the Saint-Estèphe properties: Clos de Garramey and Ségur de Cabanac in 1805 and 1810, creating the Château Ségur de Garramey, and built the Palladian castle which still remains there today. The property took its current name at the beginning of the 20th century. After a century of ownership by the Delon family of Léoville-Las-Cases fame, Phélan-Ségur has belonged since 1985 to Xavier Gardiner , who also owns the Lanson and Pommery champagne houses. The vineyard now covers 70 hectares.
