Château Phélan Ségur, St. Estèphe (Bordeaux, France) 2014

($40): Under Véronique Dausse’s management Château Phélan Ségur has catapulted into the top ranks.  Her team produced a positively gorgeous wine in 2014.  Though refined and polished, it retained the attractive gritty earthiness that makes the wines of St. Estèphe so engaging.  At $40 a bottle, it is one of the best buys of the vintage.
