The 2009 Phélan-Ségur has a more generous and slightly more exotic bouquet than its peers with plush red cherry, redcurrant, soy and forest floor aromas that soar from the glass. Thankfully it maintains ample freshness and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, quite firm and slightly chalky tannin with unerring symmetry and tension towards the finish that is pure class. This is an outstanding contribution to the vintage and it surely constitutes one of the best wines ever made at the estate. Tasted blind at Farr Vintners’ 2009 Bordeaux tasting. -- Neal Martin

Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Phélan Ségur leaps from the glass with scents of crème de cassis, molten chocolate, licorice and blueberry compote with touches of cardamom, Morello cherries and dried mint. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals beautiful poise with a fine frame of grainy tannins and a refreshing backbone, finishing long and mineral laced. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown

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.

(17/20) Neat, fresh, 'classic' nose. Not that concentrated but beautifully balanced. Relatively advanced though. Just a tad simple.

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.
