WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, the 2015 Phélan Ségur has a nose of red and black currants with earthy notes of fungi, dried herbs, damp soil and tapenade. The palate is medium-bodied with a good fruit core, firm and chewy tannins and nice freshness.” 90+ points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Advocate
Chateau Phelan-Segur was bought by Xavier Gardinier in 1985 and is now run by his sons, Thierry and Laurent. Phelan-Segur's 66 hectares of vineyards are well-sited near the Gironde estuary and lies on well-drained gravel soils. The vineyards are bordered by those of Chateau Montrose and Chateau Calon-Segur. Phelan-Segur's wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Merlot (30%) and Cabernet Franc (10%). The grapes are fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats and the wine is then matured in oak barrels (30% new) for 15 months. Phelan-Segur usually requires at least 5-7 years of bottle ageing to show at its best and the best vintages can continue improving for up to 15 years.
