    The power of a balanced and harmonious Saint-Estephe

    A beautiful reference of the Saint-Estephe appellation, Chateau Phelan-Segur stands out among the rest on the left bank of Bordeaux and expands over a superb vineyard of 70 hectares.

    Following a wet and cold winter and a mild and rainy spring, a miracle occurred: a dry and hot summer. Despite the strong mildew pressure during the months of May and June, the Chateau Phelan-Segur vineyard was not severely harmed. During the great drought of the summer months, the clay-gravel soil of Chateau Phelan-Segur allowed for an accumulation of underground water resources. In September and October the fruit enjoyed conditions ideal for ripening, in time for harvests beginning on September 24th and ending on October 11th.

    The Chateau Phelan-Segur 2018 blends Cabernet Sauvignon (57%) and Merlot (43%). At the tasting, the wine displays an intense ruby red color in the glass, with bright violet reflections. A very expressive nose offers delicious aromas of ripe red fruit, with hints of plum and ripe cherry. The wine caresses the palate right after the entry, and shows off a generous and juicy texture. This wine has an exceptionally powerful tannic structure with round, polished tannins. Crunchy and juicy, the mid-palate retains beautiful fruit and a length that lingers with toasty notes and hints of espresso. A great, intense and concentrated Saint-Estephe that will age wonderfully well over the years.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2018 Phélan Ségur is a blend of 57% Cabernet Sauvignon and 43% Merlot, harvested from September 14 to October 4. The wine comes in at 14% alcohol, 3.8 pH and has an IPT (total polyphenol index) of 77. Deep purple-black in color, it springs from the glass with bright, vibrant notes of raspberry preserves, kirsch and ripe blackcurrants with hints of rose petals, tilled black soil, spice cake and warm plums plus a waft of star anise. Medium to full-bodied with a solid backbone of grainy tannins and seamless freshness, the palate sports a taut, muscular fruit profile with loads of bright red fruit sparks and a long, earthy finish.
