After a surprisingly light feeble 1995 Phelan-Segur has rebounded with a gutsy classic St.-Estephe with a saturated purple color plenty of sweet weedy cassis fruit with high quality new oak in the background good body a chewy texture and the vintage's high tannin well-displayed. This well-endowed wine requires 5-6 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2001-2012.
