Chateau Phélan-Segur 2014 Saint-Estèphe

The Grand Vin of Château Phélan Ségur comes from this magnificent terroir of Saint-Estèphe where power dominates. Château Phélan Ségur is known for its potential to age over several decades.

The 2014 blend was very strongly influenced by Cabernet Sauvignon (64%).

This Château Phélan-Ségur 2014 has an intense red colour, the nose exudes notes of black fruit, blackcurrant, blackberry. On the palate, it is a wine with a nice balance, long and round without aggressiveness. The silky tannins attest to the perfect ripeness of the picked grapes.

'The spice and floral characters are fresh and perfumed. Walnuts. Medium body, with firm and silky tannins and a linear and crisp finish. Orange peel undertone to the currants. Tight and racy. Needs two to three years to open up. Try in 2020.' 92 points(vintage 2014), James Suckling.

'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.' 91 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

'Pure and expressive, featuring a lovely beam of cassis gilded with light lilac, wet pebble and tobacco notes that should emerge more with cellaring. Best from 2018 through 2028.' 91 points(vintage 2014), Wine Spectator.
