Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

A beautiful alternative to the prestigious great growths of Bordeaux, the second wines promise feats of great vintage years. From the youngest of large plots of Bordeaux chateaux, they live on the same land and benefit from a unique expertise in viticulture and vinification. 

Domain and appellation

  • Château Phélan-Ségur

    Since 1985, the Gardinier brothers ensures the standing of the Château and its terroir. Thierry, Stéphane and Laurent Gardinier perpetuate the values and the gentlemanly spirit of the creators, men fueled by love and conviction.


     

    • Terroir: The vineyard of the Château Phélan Ségur extends on 70 hectares on wonderful clay gravels on the hills and plateau of Saint-Estèphe.

       
    • Wine-making: The grape is harvested manually and carefully at optimum ripeness. The fermentation is made during about 10 days where specific remontages, délestages and pigeages are done regularly in function of each batch. Put in barrels, the wines start their malolactic fermentation in the warm atmosphere of the cellar. The long work of assembly begins at the end of the wine and consists in tasting rigorously each batch. Some batches are meant to be used to elaborate the Grand Vin of the Château Phélan Ségur while others are used to create the Second Wine Frank Phélan or the La Croix Bonis.
