Reviews for 2010 Phelan-Segur Bordeaux Blend

JS 93
James Suckling - jamessuckling.com, April 2011
This sneaks up on you with blackberry and spices such as nutmeg and cloves. Full spices with currants and berries. Builds on the palate like a wave. Best ever.

Fleshy and inviting with bittersweet cocoa roasted tobacco black currant preserve and warm fig sauce notes all defined and well-supported by dusty tannins. -J.M.

A blend of 41% Cabernet Sauvignon and 59% Merlot raised in 50% new oak the nose takes its time to reveille in the glass: blackberry small dark cherries a touch of smoke and cigar box. Good definition but very tight. The palate is medium-bodied with powdery tannins good definition but perhaps like Calon-Segur a little disjointed at this stage. Good weight on the sinewy finish with dense black tarry fruits quite uncompromising at the moment but that is not such a bad thing in the long term. The Phelan-Segur 2010 has good potential and may surprise in bottle just as the great 2005 is doing. Drink 2014-2025+

The irrepressible Michel Rolland (the winemaking consultant at Phelan-Segur) has fashioned an impressively pure deep classic St.-Estephe with a supple personality as well as robust tannins. Cellar it for 2-3 years and drink it over the following 12-15 years.

With an average age of 35 years the vines are planted on gravel and clay soils with 40 hl/ha. Classic cabernet sauvignon aromas of blackberry dominate the nose along with secondary notes of fresh turned earth baking spice and crushed pebble already showing up in this somewhat evolved young wine. The palate is powerful with black fruit and dense with precise texture and weight leading to a lingering finish with fine grain tannins.
