The 2019 Château Phélan Ségur Saint-Estèphe is a blend of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc. The grapes were picked between September 24 and October 10, 2019. The year 2019 was a good year for the Medoc, especially Cabernet Sauvignon gave good results. Cool temperatures were experienced from April to mid-June. The precipitation in April and June was 35 and 42 mm above normal for these 2 months. There was an early bud burst and bloom. From the end of June there was a change of weather giving way to warm and dry conditions (marked by storms and heat waves). Thanks to the clay and gravel soil, Château Phélan Ségur did not suffer from major water stress. The grapes could thus be harvested in perfect condition, brimming with health and vigor.

In the glass we see a beautiful ruby red color with purple highlights. The nose contains a multitude of complexity due to the aromas of beautiful ripe fruit (such as cherries, blackcurrant, blackberries) and also notes of toast and licorice. On the palate, the remarkable thickness at the start goes perfectly with the fleshy and crunchy fruit in the middle of the mouth. This harmonious blend remains in suspense thanks to a nice freshness at the end and a great aromatic persistence. In short, Château Phélan Ségur 2019 combines freshness and strength in this generous vintage with exceptional tannic power supported by a volume of rare density.

James Suckling score 96-97
