2018 Ch Phelan Segur Frank Phelan St Estephe
Created in 1986, Frank Phélan, the second wine of Château Phélan Ségur, is named after the son of Bernard Phélan, founder of the estate. Frank Phélan comes from 15 hectares of old vines and a selection of vines of less than ten years. It's kind of like a teenager, full of youthful energy, and ready for the responsibilities of maturity.
Frank Phélan associates indulgent fruit, intense and compelling, with an elegant structure of silky tannins. It undergoes 14 months’ aging. It's roundness and suppleness allow it to be enjoyed from a young age.
James Suckling: 93 Points
A linear yet juicy red with compressed, ripe tannins with lots of spices and ripe berries, as well as hazelnuts. Medium to full body, creamy texture and a flavorful finish. Excellent second wine from Phélan Segur.
Jeb Dunnuck: 90 Points
The second wine of Phélan Ségur in Saint-Estèphe, the 2018 Frank Phélan has a terrific nose of ripe dark currants, black cherries, leafy herbs, and spring flowers. This plump, medium-bodied, fruit-forward and undeniably delicious 2018 is already hard to resist yet is going to easily keep for a good decade. It's a hidden gem of a Saint-Estèphe.
