2009 Phélan-Ségur, St-Estèphe

SKU #1113294 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2009 Phélan-Ségur has a more generous and slightly more exotic bouquet than its peers with plush red cherry, redcurrant, soy and forest floor aromas that soar from the glass. Thankfully it maintains ample freshness and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, quite firm and slightly chalky tannin with unerring symmetry and tension towards the finish that is pure class. This is an outstanding contribution to the vintage and it surely constitutes one of the best wines ever made at the estate. (NM) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Solid wine. Bright blueberry and floral aromas follow through to a full body, with soft, velvety tannins and a long finish. Best since 1989. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Deep garnet colored, the 2009 Phélan Ségur leaps from the glass with scents of crème de cassis, molten chocolate, licorice and blueberry compote with touches of cardamom, Morello cherries and dried mint. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals beautiful poise with a fine frame of grainy tannins and a refreshing backbone, finishing long and mineral laced. (LPB) Inner quote mark (3/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This is fleshy and polished, with layers of crushed plum, fig sauce and blackberry paste that unfurl slowly, backed by maduro tobacco, charcoal and iron. There's lots of minerality on the finish, but it's nicely enveloped in the fruit. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2012)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Medium bright red-ruby. Wild, musky aromas of black raspberry, smoky oak and crushed rock. Broad, silky, dry and laid-back, with a subtle sweetness to its complex flavors of dark berries, licorice, herbs and black olive. Finishes ripe and smooth, with big, fine-grained tannins and excellent breadth and length. An excellent vintage for this chateau. (ST) Inner quote mark (7/2012)

K&L Notes

*1/2. V Good entry. Fine richness. Chewy and lush at back. At UGC: Explosive in the glass, with tons of herbs and blackberry fruit. Rich, but in perfect balance. Very good.
