1971 Château Phelan Segur
Chateau Phélan-Segur (St Estèphe) 1971 (47% Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot 51%, Cabernet Franc 2%).
Some Cabernet Franc in this vintage for Phélan-Segur. Beautiful, open, sweet fruit on the nose, oak is still working out here, but shows good concentration of fruit too. Good depth, comprehensive structured style, a little dense, rough and maybe a little tight. precious components overall structure and well balanced. Very good potential here. I like this a little more than my last tasting.
