Ch. Phélan Ségur sells vineyards to Montrose!

 

 Chateau Montrose, St Julien

Thierry Gardinier, owner of Chateau Phelan Ségur in Saint Estèphe, has sold 22 hectares of his property to neighbour Martin Bouygues of Chateau Montrose.

The properties are located next to each other, but Montrose is a second classified growth, and Phélan Segur a former Cru Bourgeois Exceptionnel (from the now defunct 2003 classification). Bouygues has bought plots of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, increasing the Montrose holdings from 67ha to 89ha.
