✔ Sterk in de lift: ‘has just powered to better and better wines over the past few years’ (Decanter)
✔ Consultancy door Michel Rolland
✔ Kan goed de ‘best value for money’ van Saint-Estèphe zijn (Neil Martin)

Phélan Ségur (nieuwe eigenaar sinds 2017, maar met hetzelfde team) zit in een geweldige flow waarin het jaar in jaar uit aan ‘over-delivery’ doet. De Amerikaanse recensent Jeb Dunnuck kon dan ook een ‘wow’ niet onderdrukken toen hij het vatmonster van de 2020 proefde (94-96 punten).

De 2020 voorziet in de eerste blend van vier druiven: 54% cabernet sauvignon, 42% merlot, 2% cabernet franc en, voor het eerst (aanplant van 2013), 2% petit verdot.

The austerity to the tannins works in this wine's favour giving a juicy grip to the concentrated blackcurrant and bilberry fruits without strangling them. Excellent stuff, finishing up with liquorice and smoked coffee bean. This is an estate that has just powered to better and better wines over the past few years. Yields were 10% below the average of the past five years but still at 40hl/ha. Harvest September 16 through to October 1, finishing around 10 days earlier than the past two years. Consultants Michel Rolland and Julien Viaud. First vintage with Petit Verdot included in the main wine (2%), from vines planted in 2013. Tasted twice.

The 2020 Phélan Ségur has a very intense and almost Pauillac-like nose of blackberry, pencil box and cedar aromas, complex and mineral-driven. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins and plenty of black fruit laced with cedar and tobacco, quite sturdy and conveying more substance than recent vintages. This impressive Saint-Estèphe has great potential and might well represent the appellation's best value for money.

Getting a legit "wow " in the notes, the 2020 Château Phélan Ségur looks to be another incredible wine from the team of Véronique Dausse. A blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon 42% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, it's a deep, almost inky-hued barrel sample offering gorgeous notes of crème de cassis, blueberries, damp earth, crushed violets, and graphite. With full-bodied richness, a round, layered texture, serious concentration, and building structure, this is the real deal and up with the gems in Sainte-Estèphe. While some wines show a softer, more forward style, this is firm, mineral-laced, and structured, and is going to reward a good decade of cellaring.
