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.
Rich, almost New World in style upon first taste, this Phelan is a layered, complex claret with a firm structure, tight, building tannins, and a dense core of concentrated black forest fruits. The acidity is fresh, and there are notes of spice, capsicum and some graphite. Altogether a rich, brooding Saint-Estèphe
A perfect partner for roast rack of lamb served pink.
Harvest dates: 18th September - 11th October, the longest harvest ever at this property. A yield of 52hl/ha, there is 10% press wine in the blemd. Ageing is in 500lt oak barrels (55% new) and stainless steel tanks for 16-18 months.
