Firm, silky, elegant and complex - a really fine wine from a difficult vintage
Irish origins, four families and more than two centuries of passion, respect for the terroir and innovation in the service of a great name. The Grand Vin of Château Phélan Ségur comes from this magnificent terroir of Saint-Estèphe where power dominates. Strengthened by its origins, Château Phélan Ségur has created its identity based on elegance and finesse.
The 2017 vintage is a “classic” Médoc style with racy tannins and a structure revealing elegance in attack, smoothness in the middle of the mouth and power at the end of the mouth. A great intensity on the nose with aromas of very ripe black fruits (blackcurrant, blackberries) in perfect harmony with discreet toasted and buttery notes. In the mouth, the tasty texture provides immense pleasure and recalls a perfect maturity in an early vintage.
Veal, pork, beef, lamb, duck, game, roast chicken, roasted, braised, stewed, and grilled dishes all pair wonderfully well with this wine
