Reviews for 2009 Phelan-Segur Bordeaux Blend

JS 93
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, February 2012
Solid wine. Bright blueberry and floral aromas follow through to a full body with soft velvety tannins and a long finish. Best since 1989. Try after 2017.

Served blind at the Southwold 2009 tasting. Phelan does it again…served blind it embarrasses not only my previous scores but also its peers in this flight, just as it did in the same place apropos 2005. Here, the 2009 displays more unresolved oak on the nose, although is clearly the fruit concentration to subsume it with time. Perhaps it is glossier, more extrovert than its peers. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins on the entry. It has a very pleasing balance, bags of freshness and vigour with a precise, mineral-rich finish that is convincing.

This is fleshy and polished with layers of crushed plum fig sauce and blackberry paste that unfurl slowly backed by maduro tobacco charcoal and iron. There's lots of minerality on the finish but it's nicely enveloped in the fruit. Best from 2013 through 2022.-J.M.

Composed of 58% cabernet sauvignon 40% merlot and 2% cabernet franc with 50% aged in new oak. Dark purple in color with slight garnet hues the aromas are rich of boysenberry raspberry and spice with candied fruit and jammy notes following. The wine is medium to full bodied with abundant tannins and has a clean mouth feel. This is a tremendous value worth purchasing. Give it another 2-3 years and enjoy over the following 15+ years.

The best Phelan-Segur since the 1990 this is a rather dense full-bodied massive wine for a cru bourgeois. Sweet blackberry and black raspberry fruit intermixed with crushed rock and a hint of subtle oak jump from the glass of this full-bodied intense yet attractive and alluring wine. There is significant depth and substance to this Phelan-Segur which is a sleeper of the vintage that should last up to 15 or more years.

Wild musky aromas of black raspberry smoky oak and crushed rock. Broad silky dry and laid-back with a subtle sweetness to its complex flavors of dark berries licorice herbs and black olive. Finishes ripe and smooth with big fine-grained tannins and excellent breadth and length. An excellent vintage for this chateau.
