Tasting Notes

  • JS

    James Suckling, April 2021,
    Score: 95-96

    Bright and perfumed with some chocolate, berry, sandalwood and cedar. Very elegant and fine, medium to full-bodied palate with very integrated tannins and refined, polished texture. The tannins melt into the wine. Long finish with serious structure. Vivid and refined. Class here. Very Bordeaux. 54% cabernet sauvignon, 42% merlot, 2% cabernet franc and 2% petit verdot.

Producer

Château Phélan Ségur

Advantageously located between Montrose and Calon Ségur in St.-Estèphe, Château Phélan Ségur presides over 90 hectares that are dispersed over predominantly alluvial soils (clay/gravel) with a smattering of limestone and sand. Since its purchase in 1985 by the Delon family, heavy investment has restored the property to its former glory enabling the quality of the wine to soar.

Region

St Estèphe

St Estèphe is the most northern of Médoc communal crus. Its unique terroir is made up of layers of gravel which are supported by a dense clay base. This subsoil retains water in dry seasons and works particularly well with Merlot, a largely planted variety which is used to flesh out Cabernet Sauvignon. This clay base also creates powerful, textured tannins which enable St Estèphe to stand out from the pack. Like St Julien, it is one of the four most important communal appellations of the Médoc which does not contain any first growths, despite its southern border being a stone'sthrow from Château Lafite. Nonetheless, it is home to some excellent châteaux making fine wines such as Cos d'Estournel, Montrose, Calon Ségur and Lafon Rochet.
