Professional Wine Reviews for Chateau Phelan Segur St. Estephe 2006

Rated 90 by Decanter
Black-red colour, smoky, typical slightly gamey Phelan nose, but this time much more fruit than game, fragrant and sappy, very fine expression of Saint-Estephe, quite open.
Rated 89 by Stephen Tanzer
Good ruby-red. Cool, medicinal aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice, graphite and herbs. Leanish and tight; primary but a bit youthfully hard despite possessing good intensity. Hints of spice, leather and fresh herbs. Finishes firmly tannic, fresh and dry.

Additional Information on Chateau Phelan Segur St. Estephe 2006

Varietal: Red Bordeaux

Bordeaux red wines are widely regarded as being the finest red wines produced anywhere in the world, regularly topping awards lists and generally being amongst the most sought after and collectable bottles available. The secret to their success and their particularly memorable and refined characteristics is the fact that Bordeaux red wines are made from a blend of grape varietals, most commonly from Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes, helped by a touch of Petit Verdot or Cabernet Franc. The other two key Bordeaux grape varietals which are also used in the blend of many of these excellent wines are Malbec and Carménere, although it is becoming less common to see these in use today. The art of blending primarily Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grape varietals is something which has been much imitated around the world, as it produces a wonderfully balanced, rounded yet massively complex and flavorful wine, ideal for oak aging The acid and tannin levels in each of these grape varietals is balanced and tempered by the blend, and generations of expertise has gone into the careful selection and cultivation of such quality grapes.

Region: Bordeaux

Wineries in this region have been in operation for hundreds of years, and have carefully developed the expertise required for the production of carefully balanced and utterly delicious blended red and white wines, alongside some exceptional single variety bottles. Many of the chateaux found in Bordeaux have become household names, due to their prestige and the excellence of their products, grown with love and dedication by heritage wineries in this beautiful and special region.
