Château Phélan Ségur Red Bordeaux Blend St. Estèphe 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The Bordelais do a nice line in beautiful chateaux, and overlooking the riverGironde, Phélan Ségur's is one of the best examples. It is firmwith concentrated blackcurrant and minerally fruit and is surprisinglysubstantial - much more so than the very enjoyable 2004. It is purePhélan-Ségur and classic St Estèphe, but with an extraturbo boost from the 2005 vintage. If this is well priced it will turn out tobe one of the cleverest buys of the vintage. Certainly it is the bestPhélan of the modern era.

Das Ausserordentliche an diesem Wein ist sein Charakter. Er ist ein strenger, herber Bordeaux, der durch seine Individualität und seine Typizität zu den grossen Weinen dieser Welt zu zählen ist. Diesen Wein mit seinen Aromen von Teer, Eukalyptus, Vanille, Rosenduft und herben Noten werden Sie leicht wiedererkennen. Die Grösse dieses Weins zeigt sich in allen Einzelaspekten: in der Struktur, im Abgang, in der aussergewöhnlichen Aromatik.

A large estate of 220 acres planted with 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc, Phelan Segur is one of the nine crus bourgeois exceptionnels (four of which are in St Estephe). Harvesting is by hand, and the maturation is typically in 50% new oak. The 2005 is polished and fresh with lovely texture and harmony even now. It shows considerable length and a clean edge of acidity with very soft tannins. An excellent, expressive wine. Wine Spectator 89.
