Part of vertical. This year was 50/50 Cab/Merlot. A soft and really well balance wine. The kind of profile that I like.

Seductive. Concentrated dark fruits, powdery tannins, balanced acidity #saintestèphe

An elegant wine out of the 2012 vintage, deep garnet color, tempting nose of ripe black current, cassis, prunes, blackberry and dark chocolate, full body elegant and well balanced, with notes of oak and dry tannins, gripping acidity and a medium pleasant finish. Approachable today, will be better in a couple of years, my score 88, drink 2016-2029

Still young, rich, intense, marked by the oak, cocoa notes and a certain concentration, a rich wine, strong tannins, see you in a few years

One of my favorite producers! Blue and black fruit dominant. Lots of meaty, savory herbs.

A delightful BDX with a restrained finesse exhibiting copious amounts of graphite, licorice, loamy earth, dried rose petals, and ripe red fruits.

Слива, лавр, табак, сандал, вишня, кедр.
Сочно, звучно, комплексно, не слишком концентрированно, солидно и элегантно, но без чопорности и пошлости.

I'm not quite sure about Phelan Segur in 2012. The bouquet is rather restrained showing traces of dark chocolate, espresso, and a bit of cassis. Full bodied and very tannic, despite its rather low acid. On the palate this wine is unfortunately flat. Chewy, new oak scent, tobacco, dark fruits. It seems a tad over extracted to me. I have enjoyed other vintages of this historic property more in the past. If insisted, I would put this away for at least until 2022 and hope for the best... 87?
