Overall condition: Perfect
Château Phélan Ségur 2014 - Saint-Estèphe
About the domain:
The first traces of the estate date back to the middle of the 18th century with the Clos Garramey and the Ségur de Cabanac estate. But it was Bernard O'Phelan, an Irishman who left Tipperary at the end of the 18th century, who created the Château. Initially named Château Ségur de Garramey, it was on the death of Bernard that his son Franck, who gave his name to the estate's second wine, took over the controls and developed the notoriety of the Château. Franck will also be Mayor of Saint-Estèphe for many years. It was only at the beginning of the 20th century, after Franck's death, that the Château would bear its current name of Phélan Ségur.

About the 2014 vintage:
Described as "seductive, with a velvety feel of crushed plum and cassis, while fragrant notes of espresso and burnt sandalwood coat the finish." A vintage with good aging potential which is largely underestimated.
