Chateau Phelan-Segur is in the commune St Estephe in northern Medoc in Bordeaux. It is regarded as one of the best of the not classified (in the 1855 classification) properties in the Medoc. It is however classified as a Cru Bourgeois, albeit this classification is currently contested legally. The main chateau building and winery are impressive and beautiful and overlook the Gironde. They have 64 hectares of vineyard planted with vines of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet grape varieties.
the winery is modern, with stainless steel fermentation tanks and all other equipment that any self-respecting quality chateau in the top echelons in the Medoc today has. It uses a grape sorting table at the grape reception at harvest time, of course, sorting entire bunches, it ages its wines for an extended period in oak barrels.
