Founded by Irishman Bernard Phélan and then developed by his son, Frank, Château has been one of the benchmarks of the Ste-Estephe appellation since the 19th Century. Bordering Château Montrose and Château Calon-Ségur, it is situated on well drained gravel soils and produces wonderful claret.
This is an En Primeur wine and special conditions apply.

Château Phelan Sugur

This 66ha property is a consistent producer of classic St. Estèphe – solid, structured and long-lived. It is situated very close to both Château Montrose and Château Calon-Ségur, so in rather good company! Purchased by Xavier Gardinier in 1985 it is now run by his sons, Thierry and Laurent.
Yield was reduced by nearly 50% due to severe hail that hit on June 20th after a hot spell. The wine is incredibly rich, dense and concentrated with sweet lush black fruits, powerful tannins and a sinew of structure that coils around the fruit and coats it in vanilla, tannin and a wonderful freshness. The sensation is a thick, powerful, almost oily-thick wine that dominates the mouth and lingers.. a wonderfully big and long lived Phelan.
A perfect partner for roast rack of lamb served pink.
A yield of 28hl/ha, ageing is in 500l oak barrels (55% new) and stainless steel tanks for 18 months.
