I hope everyone has made it to weekend in good shape. Today I picked up the 2014 Château Phélan Ségur St. Estéphe. 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot a typically beautiful St. Estéphe.

The nose is very expressive with notes of raspberries, blackberries, cherries, black plum, black currant, chocolate, herbs, coconut, violets and a nice earth note.

On the palate the nose is confirmed with black cherry, black raspberries, blackberry, black currant, a generous amount of green bell pepper, clove, graphite, light oak and earth.

This wine is full bodied with medium + acidity and medium + firm chewy tannins that leads to a long energetic finish. Have a wonderful weekend and please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

Classic Bordeaux. Lots of black cassis, black cherry and graphite. Very young, needs 30 mins decanting. Finish is a bit bitter.

Tasted at Chateau. Still evolving. Big tannins. 65% Cab. Will be yummy in 10+ years.

One of the better PS I've had lately. Especially, young. Lush and ripe blackberries, dark cherries, blueberries. Sort of like compote. Dark chocolate, black tea, dry red florals.

2014. Cool summer but hot at the end. Picked very late. Mid October. Forest floor. More tannic. Lots of potential. Big and young.

Ok, I may be a bit deluded while writing this because there is a jazz quartet lying down some amazing tracks right now... but this wine is fitting perfectly into the vibe. Soft tannin despite it still being an adolescent... room to grow. Chocolate and dark fruit, especially blackberries. Earthy on the finish. Popping some salty olives... perfect

Mellow already, very drinkable. But lingers nicely.
