Chateau Phelan Segur 2016 has a deep red colour with purple reflections. The nose is complex with aromas of red fruit and black fruits (blackberries, cherries, strawberries). Notes of sweet spices reveal themselves after aeration. It is smooth and consistent in the mouth. The finish is long and powerful. This wine has a world-class structure, thanks to its dense and harmonious tannins.
Wine Advocate-Parker : Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2016 Phélan Ségur gives elegant red and black currants, kirsch and black berries with violets and chocolate box scents plus a waft of cigars. The palate is medium-bodied, elegant, fine grained and fresh with great vibrancy and mineral notes on the finish.
