“The 2015 Phélan Ségur has turned out beautifully. Muscular tannins wrap around a core of red cherry, plum, graphite, crushed flowers and mint. There is plenty of substance in the glass. In fact, this is one of the most polished recent young Phélans I can remember tasting. Floral notes add an appealing upper register, while silky, ripe tannins give the 2015 a good bit of early appeal. Perhaps most importantly, the 2015 is not penalized by the rustic tannins that have been an issue here in the past.”

Chateau Phelan Segur is located on the Left Bank of the Gironde Estuary near the commune of St. Estephe. Vineyards are situated on soils of gravel, small pebbles and clay. The property is a Cru Bourgeois producing savory and long-lived wines. It was bought in 1985 by Xavier Gardinier, and is currently operated by his sons, Thierry and Laurent.

This wine will age 5-7 years.

Vineyards are located close to the estuary on well-drained gravel soils. The 2015 wine is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 10% Cabernet Franc.  Grapes are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks, and spend 15 months aging in oak barriques, 30% of which is new.
