Like a curious little brother Phelan Segur looks over the shoulder of Chateau Montrose in Saint Estephe. The estate is known for the powerful, focused, and slightly edged style that make Saint Estephe famous.
“This is the most powerful Phélan Segur I have ever tasted. A solid core of dense fruit and layered tannins that are so refined and polished. Remains fresh, energetic and bright. Yet, there’s plenty of harmony and balance.” - JS
A crazy good Bordeaux under $40!
This spicy wine shows how far the estate has moved from its over-use of new wood. In this bottling, the wood is subtle and doesn't mask the rich fruit and the juicy acidity. It still has the structure of a Saint-Estephe while keeping everything in good balance.
