Degustation notes

Very dark cherry colour, still a fairly closed bouquet but very promising with pronounced woody notes and toasted aromas, ample andvaried from the first sip, almost too easy to drink, a modern style bordeaux, pleasantly supple despite the significant presence oftannins, refined aromas of berries with tobacco notes, coffee and chocolate, dense and lively with an elegant structure. A unique wine and a lovely journey for the senses.

    Phélan Ségur ist in sehr vielen Jahren ein super Wertkauf! Eher moderner Bordeaux mit viel Wucht und Kraft und vielleicht einer Spur zu viel Süsse. Der 2009er macht hier keine Ausnahme. Dürfte daher auch Italien-Liebhabern gefallen, welche Bordeaux sonst etwas zu mineralisch/ trocken finden. Phélan Ségur gibt's in manchen Jahren schon für 35.-. Viel Wein fürs Geld.
