Château Phelan Sugur

This 66ha property is a consistent producer of classic St. Estèphe – solid, structured and long-lived. It is situated very close to both Château Montrose and Château Calon-Ségur, so in rather good company! Purchased by Xavier Gardinier in 1985 it is now run by his sons, Thierry and Laurent.

Tasting Notes

Oh my word! A wonderful impressive and brooding nose, this is classic claret, with layers of creamy mulled black fruits, tobacco and cigar box, a touch of mulberry and some fleshy notes. A classic terroir driven claret, big, robust yet laced with intriguing qualities that will unfold and delight in time. It is a big wine, but deceptively elegant even at this early stage.
