2003 Château Phélan Ségur, Cru Bourgeois St-Estèphe
The commune of St-Estèphe has enjoyed particular success in this challenging vintage. A very different style from Lafon-Rochet, for here the accent is on restraint and finesse. The wine has good colour and is medium bodied with defined yet supple tannins. The elegance is particularly appealing, not overstated but fine-tuned and reserved with a long and attractive finish. Phélan Ségur is definitely an estate to watch, and major value for the vintage.
