“A major sleeper of the vintage, the 2010 Phelan-Segur has a dense ruby/purple color, ripe mulberry and black currant fruit intermixed with some floral notes, and a hint of subtle oak as well as touches of lavender and licorice. Layered, opulent, ripe and fleshy, this beauty should drink nicely for 10-15 years.”

-In 1985, the Gardinier family became guardians of a heritage that until then had been in the hands of the Delon family. Since the start of the 1990s Thierry Gardinier, eldest of Xavier’s three sons, personally took over the reins at the vineyard, supported by his brothers Stéphane and Laurent. He has marked the property with his personality, the values of humanism cultivated by his family, and an unconventional and demanding vision, as much in viticulture as in the commercial strategy.
