2010 Chateau Phelan Segur Saint-Estephe
“92-93 points James Suckling.
“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.”
“92 points Wine Enthusiast.
“The best wine from Phélan Ségur for several years, this shows less of the often-intrusive new wood and more of the fruit that had been missing in past vintages. It shows a subtle level of toast and a black currant flavor, plus great acidity and freshness on the finish.”
“92 points Wine Spectator.
“Allies solid density to subtle refinement, with steeped plum, currant, singed iron and charcoal notes. Lightly firm through the finish, showing a lovely tobacco edge, this should age gracefully. Best from 2014 through 2025.”
“17.5 / 20.Jancis Robinson.
“Elegantly cedary freshness on the nose and a slight sweetness of fruit and oak. Smooth but quite dense tannins. Great depth of fruit and length but great freshness from the tannins. 17.5/20 points.”
