It wasn't mere chance that led Bernard Phelan, a young Irish wine broker, to leave his homeland at the end of the 18th century and settle in Bordeaux. At that time, the city was a major trading centre with the British Isles. The families that did business together, buying and selling the wines produced in the region, formed close tics. These relationships sometimes led to marriages, and notably that of Bernard Phelan to one of the daughters of Daniel Guestier, a well-known merchant in the market. With the benefit of his father-inlaw's experience, he was able to sum thinking about making his own wines, in order to do this, he acquired Ie Clos dc Caramey. located in Saint-Esiephe, in 1805. followed in 1810 by the Segur de Cabanac estate to complement his first acquisition. He thus created a magnificent wine-producing domain that remains practically unchanged today. When he died in 1841. Bernard Phelan Ieft this vast estate, known from then on under the combined name ot Chateau Segur de Garamey, to his son Frank. The latter though of Irish stock, was a Medoc man in his heart, and devoted his lite to promoting the renown and improving the quality of the wines produced on his property. In addition, he became the mayor of Saint-Esstephe, holding the post for thirty years. Read less

Pretty on the nose, and while the oak is a bit prominent, this has lovely nuanced herbal and nutty, almost cooked vegetable beet root and parsnip aromas. Tight and light on entry, there's terrific substance here but you really have to coax it out, there is great vibrancy to what is here, and it comes of as very classic, and while it probably won't be terribly long lived, this will be fascinating to follow, ripe tannins but plenty of them support good length on the very fresh finish. 92pts

Herbaceous and vegetal on the nose with an underlying woody sweetness – indistinct in the mouth with nice richness but not much focus, acid is acceptable, tannins really build up, sort of just lays across the palate, (81-82)

While sharing some traits with the Cos this has a much redder fruit profile, a bit more towards cooked grenadine with complicating notes of oak and licorice but ultimately returning to strong notes of crushed berries. Richer and softer in the mouth than the Cos this is just opening and while it is a bit on the tough and astringent side it offers up a good core of fresh red fruit with excellent sustain through the finish. Not alot of complexity but fresh and delicious. 2007-2020

Sehr fein! Elegant, wenig Holz, ausgezeichnet. Auch hier: Die Tannine werden nur noch feiner. Spitzenjahrgang 09er hat auch hier nicht enttäuscht.

Sweet dark fruit nose. Cassis. Lots of tabac. Closed with a potent finish. Lots of potential here.

The Phelan-Segur has an attractive bouquet with crisp blackberry and floral aromas, pretty in a similar way to Lilian Ladouys. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp chalky tannins. The oak is well integrated with fine acidity, the finish foursquare ... Neal Martins Wine Journal. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2011 Phelan-Segur 6000ml

51% cabernet sauvignon, 49% merlot. With an average age of 35 years, the vines are planted on gravel and clay soils with 40 hl/ha.

Deep aromas of crushed blackberries and fresh herbs. Full-bodied, with round and soft tannins and a polished texture on the finish. Rich and structured. Could be best ever from here. -JS Wine Spectator. A Bordeaux Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 2009 Phelan-Segur 3000ml

Like many of the top 2009s, Phelan-Segur is a huge, full-bodied effort with massive fruit as well as good freshness, precision, and elegance. This is all rather paradoxical given previous great vintages that either lean toward cooler vintage characte... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
