    ”The 2014 Phelan-Segur has quite a punchy nose with blackberry, iris and iodine scents that shoot from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a pleasant chewiness on the entry. This segues into a well balanced middle with well-judged acidity, crisp black fruit infused with graphite and a touch of sea salt towards the finish. It might not quite have the finesse of the top Saint Estèphe's, but there is clearly decent length and energy here. Tasted twice with consistent notes."Neal Martin

    ”A major sleeper of the vintage, the 2010 Phelan-Segur has a dense ruby/purple color, ripe mulberry and black currant fruit intermixed with some floral notes, and a hint of subtle oak as well as touches of lavender and licorice. Layered, opulent, ripe and fleshy, this beauty should drink nicely for 10-15 years." Robert Parker

    ”The best Phelan-Segur since the 1990, this is a rather dense, full-bodied, massive wine for a cru bourgeois. Sweet blackberry and black raspberry fruit intermixed with crushed rock and a hint of subtle oak jump from the glass of this full-bodied, intense, yet attractive and alluring wine. There is significant depth and substance to this Phelan-Segur, which is a sleeper of the vintage that should last up to 15 or more years.“

A Cru Bourgeois property, Château Phélan-Ségur produces textbook St Estèphe wines which are meaty and long-lived. The 66 hectares of vines are bordered by those of Château Montrose and Château Calon-Ségur and are planted on well drained gravel soils near the Gironde esturary. Typically a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc, Phélan-Ségur usually requires at least 5-7 years of bottle ageing to show at its best.
