It wasn't mere chance that led Bernard Phelan, a young Irish wine broker, to leave his homeland at the end of the 18th century and settle in Bordeaux. At that time, the city was a major trading centre with the British Isles. The families that did business together, buying and selling the wines produced in the region, formed close tics. These relationships sometimes led to marriages, and notably that of Bernard Phelan to one of the daughters of Daniel Guestier, a well-known merchant in the market. With the benefit of his father-inlaw's experience, he was able to sum thinking about making his own wines, in order to do this, he acquired Ie Clos dc Caramey. located in Saint-Esiephe, in 1805. followed in 1810 by the Segur de Cabanac estate to complement his first acquisition.

A large estate of 220 acres planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, Phelan Segur is one of the nine crus bourgeois exceptionnels (four of which are in St Estephe). Harvesting is by hand, and the maturation is typically in 50% new oak. The 2005 is polished and fresh with lovely texture and harmony even now. It shows considerable length and a clean edge of acidity with very soft tannins. An excellent, expressive wine. Wine Spectator 89.

Das Ausserordentliche an diesem Wein ist sein Charakter. Er ist ein strenger, herber Bordeaux, der durch seine Individualität und seine Typizität zu den grossen Weinen dieser Welt zu zählen ist. Diesen Wein mit seinen Aromen von Teer, Eukalyptus, Vanille, Rosenduft und herben Noten werden Sie leicht wiedererkennen. Die Grösse dieses Weins zeigt sich in allen Einzelaspekten: in der Struktur, im Abgang, in der aussergewöhnlichen Aromatik.
